It is summer time and the UD News is once again looking for a baby - with a summer pose - to grace its front page of its last edition of the year on Thursday, December 15th.

The UD News Summer Baby competition is aimed at babies who are celebrating their first ever summer, hence also making the “headlines” in doing so.

How to enter

Babies born on 25 December 2015 or in the months to follow until now, are allowed to be entered.

Submit a high resolution quality photo (1MB+/1000KB+) of your baby with “Summer” as the theme. Whether it be a flower in the hair, sun glasses, surf board or a cute baby bikini, be creative and submit the photo via the UD’s social media platforms.
