How to enter:
Entry is quick, easy and totally FREE. Just follow these simple steps:
1. Like Baby’s First Year on Facebook
2. If you’re entering a photo: Upload your picture — along with a cute caption — to the wall of our Baby’s First Year Fan page, then click the Share button.
If you’re entering a video: If you’d like to enter an embeddable video you already have a up on YouTube, you can share the YouTube link on our wall instead.
Please note: If you’re sharing a YouTube link, the video must have an embed code (otherwise we can’t use it!). The default YouTube setting for uploading videos gives each new video an embed code, so unless your videos are private, they’ll have the code.
**Unsure how to do upload photos or YouTube links? Check out our instructions below.**
Three winners will be chosen by Babble’s editorial team and announced here on Baby’s First Year on MONDAY, APRIL 18TH. We’ll choose the winners based on:
- Appearance: the overall cuteness of the photo (20%)
- Expression: the sense of the little person’s feelings that come through (20%)
- Photo/composition quality: how clear and visually appealing the photo is (20%)
- Humor: how much the photo makes us laugh (20%)
- “It factor”: that Je ne sais quoi that makes it an amazing photo (20%)
If you have any questions, please email Andrea Roxas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
