Little Fockers Holiday Photo Contest

Dear AFP Family,

Thanks to everyone for sending in their awkward photos and proving once again that the holidays truly are the most uncomfortable time of the year! It wasn’t easy to narrow down the field but we made our list of finalists and after checking it twice it’s now up to you to decide the winner. Vote for your favorite photo as many times as you like before December 21st at 11:59 PST. The most festively awkward pic takes over the homepage on 12/22 and receives a signed copy of the Awkward Family Photos book (as well as some fun stocking stuffers from our friends at Universal & YFrog).

Vote for your favorite below. Check out all of the submissions here.

And don’t forget that “Little Fockers” starring Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller is now in theaters!


And a rebel was born.

White Christmas

“Everyone is ready for the big guy to arrive, so we’re waiting for Santa in our favorite Christmas pajamas!”

The Imposter

“From across the room, Santa looked harmless and jolly, like on TV. Claire was fixated on her present until she glanced up to see that Santa was completely different from this perspective. Luckily Dad was there to snatch her back up before she had a chance to cry/scream/punch him in the beard.”

Something’s Fishy

“The first year we lived in Alaska, my mom caught a 65lb king salmon and wanted everyone to know about it. Hence, this Christmas card.”

Vested Interest

“My mom was really into making matching family outfits. This Christmas, she went a little overboard. I don’t know what makes the picture; the patterns, my little brother being a little man, or the snarl on my little sister’s face.”

May The Awkward Be With You

“It was the late 90s and my father had received the entire cast of Star Wars as lifesize cardboard cutouts the previous year for his birthday, so naturally they were included in the holiday card that was sent out to all of our friends and family. I (the lovely little gem front in center with the poodle) can’t decide what is more amazing about this photo: my father’s sheer glee-grinning from ear to ear or the fact my 7th grade sister actually posed for it. Nothing says “happy holidays” quite like obe won and in our family the force is greater than the birth of jesus and our trifecta looks more like the star wars trilogy. Happy Holidays from my family to yours!”
