To celebrate our town’s history and beauty, the Greenwich Historical Society is once again organizing its This Place Matters! photo contest. We can think of no better time to take a walk outside and photograph some of your favorite spots. This year there will be two categories. The first includes photos of places that inspire, enrich or define your experience of our town—a special street, quiet nook, store, restaurant, trail or garden. The second honors the centennial of the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment. It includes photos of places that were inspired or designed by Greenwich women (living or deceased). Think schools, buildings, landscapes, businesses—anything that has enhanced our community over the years.
Submit your hi-res photos with a brief statement about what makes the location special and worth preserving. Winning photos will be announced at a reception on July 18 and be published in GREENWICH magazine. The contest celebrates Greenwich Preservation Month and was inspired by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s initiative to encourage conservation at the local level. Deadline is Wednesday, July 1, and submission details can be found at greenwichhistory.org.
