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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org (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:
