Westport CT – January 13, 2015. The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce announces it will be publishing a new Membership / Visitor’s Guide for 2015 and will be holding a photo contest for the front cover.
“It has been five years since there has been a new visitor’s guide, it’s time for a new one,” said WWCC Executive Director Matthew Mandell. “To make the publication even more about and a part of the town we want a photo taken by a resident to grace the front cover. So we are holding a contest.”
The new guide, to be published in early spring, will feature an upgraded pull out map, a focus on Westport’s vibrant restaurant scene and a section emphasizing the arts which make our community so unique. This is all in addition to highlighting our businesses what makes our community a great place to work, live and visit.
"I am pleased that the reinvigorated WWDC is undertaking a new visitor’s guide,” said First Selectman Jim Marpe. “My administration is working closely with the business community to help our Town maintain its strong business environment. The new guide will be a great compliment to our many other ongoing efforts to improve and enhance Westport's Downtown and beyond."
The photo contest is open to anyone who has an eye for that special shot that represents the best of the Town. The winning photo, to be selected by the Board of Directors of the Chamber, will be used on the front of the guide as well as the front of the map which will together and independently be distributed around town. Runner up photos will be used throughout the guide with all the names of the artists published prominently.
“This is a good time to become a member of the chamber and take advantage of being in the guide,” said Jonathan Baron, Chairman of the Board of the WWCC. “I’m looking forward to being a judge of the photo contest. It’s just another way we’re trying to bring our community and businesses together.”
