The photo featured above is none other than the winner of the most recent Dan’s Papers photo contest, the theme of which was: Gratitude! This image of a warm winter sunset on Main Beach, taken by the talented William Grand, earned him this contest’s prize, a $100 gift certificate to the Calissa restaurant in Water Mill, and a chance at the grand prize of becoming a Dan’s Papers cover artist!

Get ready, local shutterbugs, because the next photo contest has begun! Each contest brings a fresh theme, a fabulous prize and a chance to be honored as a Dan’s Papers cover artist! The current theme is Your Holiday Experience — poignant, beautiful or comical.

Sound good? Read the rules below to enter.
