Chamber Chooses Winner of Photo Contest
Picture will be featured on cover of new Visitors Guide / Membership Directory
The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that photographer and Westport resident Marc Litvinoff is the winner of our community-wide photo contest. His photograph of the Levitt Pavilion, upriver from the grass of Grace Salmon Park, will be on the front covers of the Chamber’s 2015-16 Visitors Guide / Membership Directory and map.
“We had a great response to the contest and received well over 600 photos from scores of residents,” said Matthew Mandell, Executive Director of the Chamber. “We had to make some tough choices, there were so many we could have used, but in the end we felt this one said “Westport”.” Some of the most beautiful and artful shots simply could not be used due to logistical and/or layout reasons, making the decision that much more difficult. The redesigned Levitt Pavilion is the new iconic structure in town and being one of the first publications to show it off helped make the decision.
"I'm thrilled that the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce has selected my image for their publication,” said winning photographer Marc Litvinoff. “Westport is a beautiful town which offers fantastic photo opportunities and I'm pleased to share one of my images." His collection may be seen at www.litvinoff.com
The Chamber wants to thank all the great professional photographers and amateur shutter bugs that sent us their photos. There was a great cross section of both towns presented that furthered our knowledge, appreciation and understanding of our community. We look forward to doing this again when we do our next guide two years from now.
The guide now goes into its final stages of production and will be released in early May.
