IT’S time for the annual Kouga Express Christmas Baby competition and we are looking for a baby to grace the front page of the last edition of the year – which will be published on Thursday, December 19.

The competition is for Kouga and KouKamma babies who are celebrating their first Christmas this year. To enter, parents must send their baby’s photo via email only.

Qualifying entries will be uploaded in our Christmas Baby 2019 album on the Kouga Express Facebook page.

If your photo does not appear in the album, it means it did not qualify.

Please allow at least one to two working days for entries to be reviewed and uploaded online.

The competition is not a voting competition – the number of likes will not affect the outcome of the finalists. A panel of judges will choose the winner of the competition.

The closing date for entries is at 16:00 on Wednesday, November 27.
