If These Caption Contest Winners Don’t Make You Laugh, We Don’t Know What Will

Take a break with these funnies courtesy of First for Women readers

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in over 30 years of putting out First for Women magazine, it’s that our readers definitely have a funny bone! Whether it’s sending us their hilariously adorable photos of their pets, kids and grandkids to publish or writing funny captions to go with those photos, it never fails to elicit laughs! Check out some of our funniest photos and caption contest winners throughout the years, and let us know what caption comes to your mind when you see those photos. You can email us at, or write to us and mail to Caption Contest, First for Women, 270 Sylvan Ave., Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632.

Also, consider subscribing to our print magazine, where we feature funny jokes and a caption contest in every issue — you can send us your own funny captions (and/or photos) to see your name and wit “in lights.” We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Have a funny photo you’d like to share? Email it to, and if your photo is chosen to run, we’ll pay you $50 — no strings attached!
