Funny faces photo contest

A photo of a boy making a goofy face at a local pumpkin patch that appeared in one of this media group’s newspapers prompted much laughter in our newsroom (I’d show it here, but I’m having technical troubles, so I’ll keep trying to update this post so you can see it).

It also prompted an idea from one of my colleagues: a funny face contest. So, a funny face contest it is. We want to see photos of Garden Grove and Stanton residents making funny faces.

Funny can be, literally, funny, or scary, or peculiar, or surprised, or downright weird. If you think it’s funny in any of these ways (or one we haven’t thought of), you’re eligible for this contest.

Here’s how it works: when the photos of funny faces come pouring in, we’ll organize and judge them after the Nov. 15 deadline. Then we’ll publish our top three picks – and maybe more – in the next week’s newspaper (possibly on the front page, but no promises) and on this website. 

Submit your photo or photos, in JPEG form and high resolution if possible, to Editor Brady Rhoades at Also, please identify the person or persons in the photo, their name and city of residence, and the name of the photographer.
