Searching For The Quintessential Westport Shot

The Compo cannons and Minute Man monument. Sherwood Mill and Nash’s Ponds. The Saugatuck and Aspetuck Rivers. The Bridge Street and Post Road bridges.

Those — and many others — are photographers’ favorites. From the water to the Weston border, our town teems with great scenes to shoot.

Now one of those images may land on the cover of the next Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce‘s Visitors/Membership Guide.

And it could be yours.

The Chamber is seeking “quintessential” Westport photos. The last time they asked — in 2015 — they received over 1,000 submissions, from dozens of amateur and professional photographers.

Westporter Mark Litvinoff was the winner, with a gorgeous shot of the Levitt Pavilion.

Scores of other images were used inside the 68-page booklet and map. Every winner received photo credit.

Any resident or businessperson from Westport or Weston can submit any number of entries. Send them to, with the subject line “Photo Contest.” Deadline is March 1.

“06880” will publish the winning image, and worthy runners-up.

    Judging just by photos you’ve shared, Dan, the Chamber will surely have a very difficult but pleasant time picking a winner.

  2. I think they can’t go wrong by choosing one of Lynn Untermeyer Miller’s many superb photos.
