So if you think your mum is one in a million, we want to know why.

Nicola Furbisher, managing editor at the Yorkshire Evening Post, said: “We all know inspirational mums who seem to work nonstop to keep family life running smoothly.

“This is a chance to show your appreciation for everything they do – and possibly even win them a extra special Mother’s Day treat.”

Entries and selfies must be received by Sunday March 8, 2015. Any entries received after this time will not be counted. Entries may appear in the paper and online. Usual Johnston Press rules apply, go to
