IT’S time for the annual PE 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 Wednesday, December 19.

The competition is for Port Elizabeth babies who are celebrating their first Christmas.

To enter, parents must send their baby’s photo via e-mail only. Qualifying entries will be uploaded in our Christmas Baby 2018 album on the PE 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.

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

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
  • Parent’s name and contact number
  • Address (including suburb)

Entries without the above information will be disqualified.


  • 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.

Phone 041 503 6059 for more info or send an e-mail to tanya.vanzyl@media24.com.

. Pro Design Photographers will again host open days where babies can be photographed for the competition (this is optional for parents). The cost is R100 for two digital images (no prints).

Other packages will also be available. It remains the parent’s responsibility to enter their baby.

The open days will be held on:

Saturday, November 10 from 12:00 to 15:00

Wednesday, November 14 from 10:00 to 18:00

The winning baby will receive their Christmas photoshoot with his/her family, as well as their first birthday studio shoot – valued at R3 500 – as their prize, sponsored by Pro Design Photographers.
