Contest Information

Enter the 6th annual Teen Photography Contest! This year’s theme is “Portraits of Westport.” What represents Westport to you? A picture of the Saugatuck River? An image of a tamale from the Farmer’s Market? Or maybe a photo of your grandmother? Whatever Westport means to you, capture it in a photograph and share it with us!

This contest is open to Fairfield County residents in incoming grades 6-12 (excluding recent graduates). Please fill out our submission form online and email high-resolution* jpgs to westportteenphoto@gmail.com. Photos should be titled with "first name last name" format and numbers if submitting more than one photo. Example: "JaneDoe1.jpg.” Maximum of three photographs per student. Winners will be judged by local professional photographer Pamela Einarsen.

Submission deadline is Saturday, July 14. Winners will be notified by Tuesday, July 24 and will be featured in an art show at the Suzuki Music School. The opening reception and awards ceremony will take place at the Suzuki Music School (246 Post Road East, Westport) on Thursday, July 26 from 5-6 pm. The exhibit will be on display from July 26-September 6.
