Abbeville Press, publisher of the "The New Father" series of books, is sponsoring a contest to gather cartoons for publication in the forthcoming book The Military Father: A Hands-On Guide for the Deployed Dad, by Armin Brott.

The publishers are looking for cartoons that illustrate how the military experience affects dads (mostly of newborns through age nine, but of pre-teens and teens as well) and dads-to-be in their relationships with their families. For those cartoons selected by Abbeville Press for publication, winners will receive $150 and full credit in the book.

More information, including eligibility and style guidelines, can be found at The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2008.
