How to Take Part

Do I need to buy any Gerber products to qualify for this contest?
Not at all! Participation in the Gerber Singapore Photo Search is completely free.

Is my child eligible for participation in this contest?
You can participate in the Gerber Singapore Photo Search as long as you’re a resident of Singapore of legal age (at least 18) and parent of a tot who’s between six and 24 months old on the date of entry.

How do I submit my child’s photo for this contest?
Do this by visiting the Gerber website during the submission period and following the instructions to upload and submit your child’s photo(s). It’s pretty easy!

Can I submit more than one photo of my child? 
Submitting more photos does not guarantee you a higher chance of winning. However you’re welcome to upload a maximum of three pictures of your photogenic bub. So feel free to experiment with the angles of the photograph and your little one’s choice of expression!

The top two photos with the most votes in each milestone category will win prizes. Do note that votes for each photo will not be combined. You can upload up to three photos per submission — additional submissions will be disqualified.

Can I submit a photo of my child taken by a professional photographer?
No, professionally taken photographs are not allowed in the Gerber Singapore Photo Search. So do start sharpening your photography skills soon, yeah? On the plus side, you won’t have to burn a hole in your pocket hiring one!

I have a super cute photo of my child taken sometime last year. Can I submit this?
No. The photo must have been taken within 30 days prior to the date of submission.

How will I know if my submission is accepted?
Once you have submitted your photo(s), it will take approximately two working days for approval. You will get an email notification once your photos are on the Nestlé Gerber website Gallery.

What will the judges be looking out for in selecting the Gerber Spokesbaby?
Visually appealing, high quality pictures. The more expressive your child is in the photo the better. Oh, and just like Gerber’s commitment to nurturing happy, healthy babies all over the world, a picture of your little one in line with the heritage will be good!

Can my friends and relatives to vote immediately?
Tell them to hold their horses! Voting starts at 12am on 6 July 2017 and ends on 10 August 2017 at 11:59pm. Each voter can cast one vote per photo per day.
