THE Kouga Express is once again looking for a baby to grace the front page of the last edition of the year – the Christmas edition on Thursday, December 17.

The annual Kouga Express Christmas Baby Competition is aimed at making the day special for babies who are celebrating their first Christmas.

Apart from the honour of gracing our last front page of the year, the winning baby will also receive a photo shoot and images from Beautique Photography in Jeffreys Bay.

That is not all. The winner will receive a set of three Babe-Eeze teething necklaces valued at R500, as well as one pack of 8-Trek all purpose ointment. The winner will, furthermore, crawl away with an ÉFA Bamboo Nappies hamper.

The two runners-up will each receive a set of two Babe-Eeze teething necklaces valued at R250 and one pack of 8-Trek all purpose ointment.

This year, parents must enter their babies via our social media platforms. There are three platforms to choose from:


At the top of our Facebook page, Kouga Express Newspaper, click on the Christmas Baby tab, which will take you to the entry form where you can upload your baby’s photo and enter all the details. You need to enter from a compu-ter or laptop, because cell phone entries do not work.

How the competition will work

The closing date for entries is on Sunday, November 29 at 16:00.
