2021 Fatherhood Photo Contest

The Washington Interagency Fatherhood Council needs your smiles! We know that representation matters but too often the Council struggles to find pictures of fathers with their kids. Share your pictures so that we can highlight all the amazing fathers in Washington State. Participants must be residents of the state of Washington but don't have to attend the 3rd Annual Fatherhood Summit to participate or win. You may enter one photo in any of following 6 categories:


1. Nature (e.g. outdoor activities that take place in Washington)  2. Sleeping
3. Teaching/Work (e.g. reading, doing an activity, puzzles)

   4. Playing/Silly 

5. Family/Love/Candid   6. Look alike 
Simple tips to make your photos stand out! 
  1. Shoot from a creative and unique angle

  3. Pay attention to lighting (not too dark; not too bright!)
  4. Use a high resolution (640 x 480 pixels minimum)
