We are happy to announce that professional artist and accomplished Westport graphic designer, Miggs Burroughs will judge the 2017 PIC DARIEN Smartphone Photo Contest. 

Miggs, the son of a commercial artist, grew up in the Westport community of artists that had greatly developed in the 1950’s. After graduating from what is now Carnegie Mellon University with a theatre degree, Briggs found himself working at a local newspaper and designing pages for magazines. He soon developed his affection for designing and graphic art. Since then, he has designed the Westport town flag, the Westport public schools logo, the Levitt Pavillion logo and Tunnel Vision, a permanent collection of his photos on display in a passageway in downtown Westport. His other artistic creations include a U.S. postage stamp, Time magazine covers, a public access TV show, Miggs B on TV, and a book of questions entitled What If. He is also on the Westport Arts Advisory and Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts Committees, is a founding member of the Westport Artists’ Collective, and recently took on the role of Artist in Residence at the Westport Library. Burroughs will judge the Pic Darien contest blindly; without the identity of the contestants. 

Contestants may submit their smartphone photos for cash prizes in 5 categories until March 2nd. Photos do not need to be taken in Darien. The contest is open to all; there are no age restrictions and contestants are not required to live in Darien.
