THE PE EXPRESS is once again looking for a baby to grace the front page of the last edition of the year – which will be published on Wednesday, December 20.

The annual PE Express Christmas Baby Competition is aimed at making the day even more special for Port Elizabeth 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 loads of great prizes.

Parents must enter their babies via our social media platforms. There are three platforms from which to choose:

How the competition will work

The top 10 finalists will be announced on our Facebook page and in the PE Express newspaper on Wednesday, December 13.
