Bonds has finally scrapped the public voting option on its popular Baby Search competition.

Following years of nasty comments from parents slamming the appearances of other people’s children the public votes are now a thing of the past. Thank goodness for that!

The change will stop parents from leaving nasty comments hoping to boost their own children’s chances of winning their share of the $40k prize pool.

The changes have been confirmed on the Bonds website.

Bonds officials will now select daily winners at random, and two overall winners will be chosen at the end.

Eligible age for entry has now also been extended from 0 – 4 years. AND pets are also welcome this year.

  • What a great idea, no more people complaining of others rigging the scores or using fake accounts to up their chances. Still would not do it as the new way seems weird as why do this.

  • I’m not sure I even understand the point of this. If they are chosen at random just make it a raffle so that you don’t have to submit a photo of your child.

  • I can’t believe people said horrible things about babies.

  • Bonds should donate the funds to a worthwhile cause where it is needed – maybe for flood and fire vicitims

  • I bet they are also the ones complaining about their children being bullied, that is disgusting behaviour, well done for changing the voting, hopefully they took the names of the bullies and barred them from entering
