You may not have written down all the good advice your father has given you, but at least you can do the next best thing: draw a picture of him as a tribute.
In honor of Father’s Day, we’re bringing back our popular “draw your dad” reader contest. Whether you’re a budding 3-year-old crayon artist or a skilled 83-year-old painter, we want you to create a piece of original artwork of your dad.
You can use pencil, pen, paint or whatever drawing tool you would like to illustrate him. (It must be a drawing or painting, though — no sculptures.)
A panel of judges will select winners in five age categories: 5 years and younger, 6-8 years old, 9-12 years old, teens (ages 13-18), and adults (older than 18). (The judges reserve the right to create other age categories, as the number of entries may determine.) The winners from each category get bragging rights and will be interviewed and photographed for a story that will appear in the Life & Arts section and on Star-Telegram.com on Father’s Day, June 16.
Artwork and photographs from nonwinners will not be returned but may be used in a photo gallery online.
One entry per person, please.
Note: Your father may be living or deceased.
