Chamber Seeks That “Special Shot”

After I posted a slew of gorgeous weather-related photos recently on “06880,” several readers floated the idea of producing a book filled with Westport scenes.

I will add that to my to-do list, because I definitely need another project*. But until I get to it**, here’s an idea for everyone who has ever taken a Westport photo:

The current Chamber of Commerce guide is 5 years old.

The current Chamber of Commerce guide is 5 years old.

The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce is looking for a cover photo for its new Membership/Visitor’s Guide.

Inside will be an upgraded pull-out map, a focus on our ever-changing restaurant scene, and a section highlighting the arts.

The cover — well, that’s up to you.

The Chamber wants “that special shot that represents the best of our town.” The winner — selected by the Chamber’s board of directors — will also grace the front of the map, to be distributed both with and without the guide.

Runner-up photos will be used throughout the guide. Submissions can be emailed to: (subject line: “Photo contest”). The deadline is February 15.

I know “06880” readers have plenty of fantastic photos to submit. Though I’m not sure the Chamber is looking for any of this type, which also define our town:

  1. If you want to see some great shots of Westport and a great video on Westport, go to

    Julie Vanderblue and I (Higgins Group Real Estate) collaborated with a new national marketing company called Town in making this video and I took a lot of the still photos.

    Hope you check it out and enjoy!

  2. I also love the idea of the Chamber’s photo contest and encourage the very talented photographers in town to submit their town photos. I did and heard from Matthew that they’ve received a lot of great shots.
