Please send your complete referral by the deadline mentioned above, including:

  • completed referral form (with details regarding the child/ren, as well as the size of the feature, number of months, and whether print and web, or print only)
  • signature from your team manager
  • profile
  • and photograph/s

so that the child or children can be featured without delay.

Deadlines and publication dates for the Be My Parent website

Since we do not rely on services like printers, designers and distributors, there are no deadlines for web only profiles. Therefore profiles can go live on the website quicker.

We aim to publish web only profiles on the website within around three weeks, providing there are no issues with the referral.

Deadlines and publication dates if referring to both services

For referrals to both the website and newspaper, we will need to stick to some of the dates in our production schedule. See our newspaper deadlines above.

However, the profiles will still appear on the website before they are published in the newspaper - by approximately three weeks.
