CONTEST IS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE 2009

HOW TO ENTER: Enter a photo by joining this group, and attaching a photo to your response in this discussion, not a new discussion.

CONTEST RULES
1 . Entry photos must somehow be related to "fathers". (See below for a more thorough explanation of this contest theme.*)

2 . 1 photo per person. Contest is open to all AoM Community members.

3 . Post-processing or photo editing is allowed. Please keep it to a minimum.

4 . Photos should have been taken by the person submitting. However, in the spirit of “capturing the moment”; you may submit a photo that was taken by someone else as long as it includes the father theme.* Please identify the photographer and the people in the photo, so other members can take that into consideration while commenting. Finalists will be determined by comments from the Photo Group members.

Members are asked to give their opinions about entries. The entries will then be narrowed down to three. This will take place during the first few days after contest ends (6-30-09). The three finalists will be voted on, in a new discussion; and the winner will be determined at the conclusion of the final vote.

Winner's name will be announced in the AoM Community, as well as on the AoM main site. Grand Prize is a very cool shirt from one of AoM’s best friends, Hawaiiabera. See below... even Brett can look cool in one of these awesome “Friday Night” shirts, from Hawaiiabera (Just having a little fun at your expense Brett, thanks to PhotoShop)

* What is the theme of this photo contest?
In the U.S., and many other countries, June 21, is the day set aside to honor fathers. In keeping with that, we’ve themed our first AoM photo contest around Fathers. (A manly idea, for sure!). Photos can be of your father, your grandfather, you (as a father), or even a snapshot of some random guy doing something in a fatherly way. The possibilities are endless. The point is, this web site is dedicated to the art of manliness; and June is the month set aside to honor fathers. What better time and way than now to do just that! Please caption your entries, and feel free to tell us as much as you’d like to help “capture the moment”. If all goes well, the entries should spark a lot of conversation; and that is exactly what AoM is all about!

Me and the boy.

Love the bib overalls, Will. He really has grown. (I guess in some ways, you BOTH have!)Happy Fathers' Day.
Here's my entry. It's my nephew and my father fishing on Memorial Day 2007. I was getting ready to deploy and my folks had a little going away party. We went fishing and I snuck up on my dad teaching my nephew how to fish. Brought back lots of good memories!

Wow, Craig. That's a good one for sure. Lots of good memories, is what it's all about. Thanks for submitting it.
This shot has a lot of potential. I'd love to see some color correcting put into it. Maybe make it nice and bright, or even b&w with good contrast.
I have a Polaroid close-up Attachment. Are you stil interested in one?
This is me with my son in front of an old video of my dad holding me.

Well, now THAT's a unique take on the generation thing. Thanks Doug!
Great pictures so far all. I'm a new father (baby's less than two weeks old). The day I came home from the hospital we snapped this of our little one.

I called it "Hang on Baby"

Check out the fingers comparison. Priceless! (I can still remember this special time in my life with my son, and it was 24 years ago!)
What a fantastic shot. I love the obvious lesson of how much these little ones rely on us as Dad's for far more than just physical protection. Sometimes I love realizing how much my kids are watching, other times I realize I need to improve my behavior and be a better example. Thanks for sharing.

"Damn!!  You're right, John Lee!  Since I'm almost 65 I will use my older memory as an excuse.  Up on chest - no.  Down on hip - yes.  (Of course at my age now, I could care less!) Thanks for the correction!"
