These days, cameras on phones often have many of the bells and whistles traditional cameras have. Though sales of standard cameras are down due to this, many photographers still prefer standard cameras. 

Whichever device you use, getting quality photos of family and friends never gets old. 

In honor of Father’s Day, The Beacon is asking residents to submit a photo of dad for our annual Father’s Day Photo Contest. We know dad has taken many photos of you over the years. This is your chance to return the favor for the special guy.  

Maybe it’s a picture of you two at graduation or shooting some late night hoops in the driveway — whatever sweet photo you have to share, The Beacon wants to see it. 

Send us a photo of your dad, and we’ll publish the winning entry, plus others, on Thursday, June 13, just in time for Father’s Day, which is Sunday, June 16.

The author of the winning photo will receive a prize from a local business to share with his or her dad.

The deadline for entries is noon Thursday, June 6, giving residents three weeks to submit a photo. All ages are encouraged to enter the contest.

Entries must include the father and photographer’s first and last name, as well as a phone number for the photographer.

Send entries to Editor Eric DeGrechie at or mail to The Wilmette Beacon, 60 Revere Drive, Suite 888, Northbrook, IL 60062. For any questions, call (847) 272-4568 ext. 23.
