Indian Brook Reservoir

Indian Brook Reservoir in Essex.

After using an amazing photo of Indian Brook Reservoir submitted by Ashley Valley for the last year, the Reporter is looking for a change with a new cover image on its Facebook page.

This time around, we’re asking our readers to help make the decision.

Starting Tuesday, March 30 and going through Monday, April 5, you can submit your favorite photo of Essex to be used as our cover photo by emailing it to

Please include a quick caption or description of the location and anyone who’s in the picture, your name as the submitter, and the name of the photographer if it’s different from yours. We request that you have permission from the original photographer before submitting their image.

We will select three finalists and post them for readers to see and vote on between April 6-11. The photo with the most votes at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 15 will then be declared the winner! In the event of a tie, we will leave voting open for an additional hour until the tie is broken.

Any questions about the contest can also be sent to
