A NEW YEAR, A NEW BONDS BABY SEARCH


WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Now in its 12th year (yes, really!) Bonds Baby Search is Australia's biggest baby search competition. Each year, we run an open call to find the next new little faces of Bonds. We look for individuality and character in each and every baby. Whether they're cheeky, charming or comical, we love to see something that brings out their personality. Winners will win the chance to star in an upcoming Bonds Baby Photo Shoot, with this year's major winner - Bonds Wonder Bub of the Year - set to win the chance to appear in a Bonds TV or billboard campaign. OMG!

 

OUR BIGGEST PRIZE EVER - HELLO TV STAR!

OUR BIGGEST PRIZE EVER - HELLO TV STAR!

This year, we've made Baby Search bigger and better than ever before! We're excited to announce our major winner, the 2016 Bonds Wonder Bub of the Year, will win the chance to star in an upcoming Bonds TV or billboard campaign. Plus, they'll also receive a Baby Search Prize Pack, worth $600 RRP. Mega!


LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

Another new feature is that we've also opened our entries to include video. Yasss! We're searching for one little star, with oodles of personality, to win our brand new video category. This category is optional and only open to those who have also entered the main photo competition. Think of it as an additional entry or another chance for your bub to win a prize in our video category. Don't worry, uploading a video or not won't affect the outcome of your photo entry. One lucky bub will win a beautiful Babyletto Lolly 3-in-1 convertible cot, full of Bonds goodies, to the total value of $1050 RRP.


TO ZIP OR NOT TO ZIP?

TO ZIP OR NOT TO ZIP?

Contrary to previous years, your baby doesn't have to be wearing a Bonds Zip Wondersuit or Romper to enter this year's competition or to be eligible for certain categories. You can dress your bub in anything you like (at least a nappy!) and they will be eligible for all relevant categories, including the Bonds Wonder Bub of the Year.
