New Canaan is sponsoring a photo contest as part of the process of updating the Plan of Conservation and Development.

Amateur and professional photographers of any age are eligible to submit photographs of New Canaan.

The town is looking for digital/electronic, high-resolution photos that celebrate life in New Canaan. Images may show anything, including natural beauty, history, landscapes, wildlife, events, celebrations, facilities, businesses, architecture or people living, working, shopping or playing in town.

Winning entries may be used in the Plan of Conservation and Development, published on the town's website, or used in other town publications. Four winners will receive gift certificates from the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce that can be used at participating businesses.

Winning photographs will be selected by a panel of judges based on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit.
