Father's Day is coming in June, and the Henrico Citizen wants to honor fathers throughout Henrico County with a special focus in its June 2 edition – and we'd like your participation!

We invite you to submit a favorite photo of yourself (and siblings or other relatives if you'd like) and your dad (or, if you are a dad, a photo of you and your children). We'll publish selected photos in our June 2 print edition and others here on HenricoCitizen.com. Some submissions will also win giveaways!

If you'd like to see your dad in print, find your favorite photo and submit it to us by clicking here and then selecting "A Day for Dad Photo Submission" from the drop-down menu. Or, you may email your photo to us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please put "A Day for Dad" in the subject field.

For all submissions, please include your name and the names of everyone who appears in the photo. Please also include a contact phone number and/or e-mail address so that we may contact you if your submission wins a prize!
