As the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce was preparing for the design of its annual visitors guide, staffers decided to look beyond the stock photos in their files and asked the public to provide images for a chance to design the cover.
Almost 100 pictures taken all over the Niagara River Region were sent in.
"They were all fabulous photos, but one in particular stuck out," President Jennifer Pauly said.
The winner is Michael Stuart, who owns Stu Stu Studio, a photography, graphic and Web-design business in Lewiston. He won a Lewiston prize package and his photo is featured on 25,000 copies of the Niagara River Region visitor guidebook, which is distributed across the region.
