ADORABLE McKenzie Malain is one of hundreds of babies who have entered the Oxford Mail Baby of the Year contest so far.

There are just five days left to enter your beautiful baby into the competition.

McKenzie’s mum Kerry said: “I want to see him in the paper.”

This is not the 17-month-old tot’s first time in the spotlight. Miss Malain said: “I entered him in the competition last year as well.”

Another proud mum was Sarah North, who was getting photos of her son Finlay.

The full-time mum from Kidlington said: “It would be lovely if he won. All parents are biased, thinking their babies are the cutest, so it’s nice to know other people think so too.”

To enter Baby of the Year, fill in an entry form in the Oxford Mail and take your child to one of the photo booths covering the competition.

All entries will be published in a special supplement in the Oxford Mail and readers will then be able to vote for their favourite.

The baby with the most votes wins the overall prize, with a runner-up from each age category: zero-nine months, 10-18 months and 19-36 months.

The winner will receive a seven-night holiday with Pontins, a £50 Sainsbury’s voucher, a canvas print of their photo and a trophy.

Runners-up will win a three- or four-night break with Pontins, a £25 Sainsbury’s voucher, a print and a trophy.

Photo booths will be at Oxford’s Westgate shopping centre until tomorrow and then at Sainsbury’s Heyford Hill from Thursday, March 27, to Saturday, March 29.

Entry forms will appear in the Oxford Mail every day until Saturday.
