THE votes have been cast and Ipswich's cutest baby has been decided, with Liliana Ellis crowned the most adorable bub by QT readers.

More than 2300 votes were registered and Liliana was chosen from 139 entrants, with Blaize Hume voted second and Makayla Hyland coming in third.

Liliana's mother, Jocelyn Ellis, was proud her daughter had come out on top.

"We were pretty confident but when we put in the nomination we saw a whole heap of entrants and then we weren't sure," she said.

Mrs Ellis and her husband Paul thanked Liliana's nanny and aunty, who bought a lot of papers and rustled up many votes.

Queensland Times marketing manager Amy O'Sullivan was ecstatic with the number of Ipswich bubs in the competition. "To have over 2300 entries was really exciting and all the babies were very cute and everyone should be very proud," she said.

Redbank Plaza marketing manager Yasmin Chrzescijanski was amazed at how many people voted. Votes were received from as far away as Townsville, Darwin and Coffs Harbour.

Liliana won a free session with Little Bean Photography and a $100 Mr Toys' Toyworld voucher.

Second and third place receive a $50 Mr Toys voucher.

Little Bean Photography's Shelley Gray spent two weeks capturing the images at Redbank Plaza.
