All contestants begin each contest month with a zero vote count, regardless of how many votes previously collected.  New contestants become eligible immediately upon approval of submitted content. A monthly winner will be announced by the 7th day of the following month.

How to Enter

To enter contest, visit www.babygiftcreations.com , submit a photo of your baby and write a short story or "tweet" (25 words or less) on “why my baby is a gift”.   Site visitors will be encouraged to vote for their favorite photo and story based on its combined originality, sentiment and cuteness. Remember, the Babies R Gifts™ Photo Contest is a celebration of the joy of babies, rather than merely a beauty contest.

Required Contestant Information

In addition to submitting a photo and story, the following information is required to enter the contest: Baby’s Name (last name not required), Date of Birth, Gender, submitting person’s name, relation to baby, and valid email address. Please see our Privacy Policy to learn how this information will be used and protected.   

Approval of Content

Submitted material will be reviewed by the staff at www.babygiftcreations.com  before a contestant is accepted into the contest. This review may take several days or longer depending upon the volume of entrants. Materials judged to be offensive in anyway will be rejected, and contestant will be notified.  All decisions pertaining to content acceptability will be made exclusively by the contest sponsor and are final and non negotiable. Contest sponsor shall be under no obligation to explain or justify its decisions. Rejected entrants may at their sole discretion submit new material if they are still interested in entering contest.

Selection of Winner

Contest winners will be determined by online public votes. Visitors to www.babygiftcreations.com will be encouraged to vote for their favorite baby photo and story. The baby receiving the most online votes during the contest month will be declared the winner. The winning baby’s photo will be posted on the website’s homepage by the 7th day of the following month and the parents or guardians will be notified by email. In the event of a tie, one winner will be chosen by the Contest’s panel of judges, and all decisions will be final.

Awarding of Prize

To qualify for the prize,  the winning baby must have received a minimum of 150 votes during the month. The prize is a wood rocking chair gift personalized with the winning baby’s name. The prize will be shipped anywhere within the USA at no cost to the contestant within 30 days after the winner has been announced. In the event that a monthly contest winner fails to meet the 150 minimum vote requirement,  no prize will be awarded that month. The contestant, however, will remain eligible to participate in subsequent contests until such time as they win a monthly prize or their 12 month eligibility expires. All other restrictions apply.  In the event that rocking chairs are not available,  a gift of equal or greater value will be awarded to the winner,  chosen by the contest sponsor.  

Voting

All voting will be done online at www.babygiftcreations.com . Visitors will be limited to casting one vote per day for an individual baby but they are permitted to vote every day during the month. Voters wishing to vote for more than one baby on any given day will be permitted to do so. To qualify to vote, an individual must register by providing their name and email address, and confirm their registration by clicking on the email sent to them at the email address they used to register. No individual may use different email addresses to vote multiple times per day for any one baby. Should the contest sponsor discover that individuals have abused this one vote per day for one baby restriction through a review of IP addresses,  all votes for that baby during the contest month may be disallowed
