6. How do you define the milestone category?

It is defined as the child’s age at time of Submission based on the child’s date of birth. An eligible Submission will be automatically assigned into a milestone category (ie. 6 – 12 months, 13 – 18 months, 19 – 24 months) and be displayed as voting-eligible photo(s) on the Website’s Gallery upon approval.

7. How to win?

Milestone Awards:

Two (2) participants that receive the highest number of valid votes in each milestone category (ie. 6 – 12 months, 13 – 18 months, 19 – 24 months) during the Voting Period, as determined by Nestlé Singapore, will be deemed the "Milestone Award recipient". There will be a total of six (6) winners. You may find out more on Section 6 of the Terms & Conditions <insert link> Page.

Grand Award:

All eligible Submissions received during the Submission Period will be judged by a panel of judges, which may include Nestlé Singapore's marketing staff and those of its advertising agencies, to determine the top scoring Submission based on the following judging criteria: (1) visual appeal and quality of the photo; (2) expressiveness of child in photo; and (3) consistency with Gerber's heritage. The Submission that best meets the Judging Criteria, as determined by the judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed the “Grand Award recipient”. Limit to one (1) winner. You may find out more on Section 6 of the Terms & Conditions <insert link> Page.

8. Can my child win both Milestone & Grand Awards?

A Grand Award recipient cannot receive a Milestone Award. In the event where the child in a milestone category garners a highest vote and is chosen for the Grand Award, the entry with the second highest number of votes will be picked as the Milestone Award recipient.

9. Can I submit more than one photo for my child? Will I have higher chances of winning if I submit more photos?

You may upload minimum one (1) photo of your child and up to a maximum of three (3) photos. However, entering more photos does not warrant a higher chance of winning. Remember, the top two (2) photos with the most votes in each milestone category win. Votes for each photo will NOT be combined for the same child received in a single Submission. Limit to one (1) valid Submission per child. Additional submission(s) for the same child will be disqualified. You may find out more on Section 3 of the Terms & Conditions <insert link> Page.

10. What is the purpose of allowing me to submit more than one photo?

Allowing the submission of more than one photo provides a choice to the parents who want to submit a different angle/expression of their child. However, entering more photos does not warrant a higher chance of winning.

Submissions for multiple siblings can be done via a separate entry, all within the qualified age i.e. between six (6) months old and twenty-four (24) months old on the date of entry. A child can only be the subject of one (1) Submission. Limit to one (1) winner per household/family.
