I AM HAVING ISSUES WITH MY INTERNET BROWSER?
Check the browser that you are using as our site can sometimes have issues with Internet Explorer, particularly if you are running an old version. We recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox which are free to download.
If you are still having issues please feel free to call us on 1800 054 321.
HOW RECENT DOES MY PICTURE NEED TO BE?
We like to see what your baby looks like now, so the more recent the photo the better. We may request further images of your baby should you make the shortlist. See the terms & conditions for more info.
CAN I USE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTO FOR MY ENTRY?
Professional photos will be accepted providing the image has been personally shot by you and/or you own the copyright of the professional photograph uploaded. There are no advantages of using a professional photo as all entries will be judged based on the baby depicted, not the quality of the photo.
CAN I USE A FILTER ON MY PHOTO?
While we accept filters on photos, certain filter treatments can distort the clarity and visibility of the subject. Without seeing a clear vision of your little one, we won’t be able to judge accurately. If you’re using a filter, make sure your baby’s face is clear enough for our judges and the public to see and vote fairly.
