CHRISTMAS BABY 2020: Enter your cutie now

The year 2020 has come with many challenges, but PE Express is happy to announce that we will continue with our annual Christmas Baby competition, and entries are open!

As with every year, we are looking for a baby to grace the front page of the last edition of the year – which will be published on Wednesday, December 16.

The competition is for Port Elizabeth babies who are celebrating their first Christmas; therefore babies who are entered need to be born after December 25, 2019.

To enter, parents must send their baby’s photo via e-mail only.

Qualifying entries will be uploaded in our Christmas Baby 2020 album on the PE Express Facebook page.

Please allow at least one to two working days for entries to be reviewed and uploaded online. If your photo does not appear in the album, it means it did not qualify.

The competition is not a voting competition – the number of likes/reactions will not affect the outcome of the finalists.

A panel of independent judges will choose the winner of the competition.

The closing date for entries is 16:00 on Monday, November 30.

How to enter:

Send the photo to baby@media24.com.

Include “PE” in the subject field.

Photos must be at least 1MB in size and in jpg format.

Include the following details in your email.

  • Baby’s name and surname.
  • Baby’s date of birth (dd/mm/yyyy).
  • Parent’s name and contact number.
  • Address (including suburb).

Entries without the above information will be disqualified.

Here are some tips when deciding to enter your baby:

  • Baby’s face needs to be clearly visible. Avoid photos of baby with a pacifier in his/her mouth.
  • Avoid using social media filters on your baby’s photo.
  • Baby needs to be fully clothed.
  • Baby needs to be alone in the photo (except in the case of twins, triplets, etc.)


  • Only babies who are celebrating their FIRST Christmas may enter.
  • Only babies who reside in Port Elizabeth may enter.
  • Only e-mail entries will be accepted.
  • No photos that are posted on our Facebook timeline or inbox will be entered.
  • You may only enter once for the duration of the competition and only one photo per entrant will be allowed – choose your photo submission carefully. Once a photo has been submitted, it cannot be swopped with another photo.
  • Photos do NOT need to have a Christmas theme.
  • Photos must be high resolution (minimum of 1MB).
  • Entries open October 14, and the competition ends on Monday, November 30 at 16:00.
  • The winner will be re-photographed and these photos will be used on the front page.
