Community Calendar

Winners of the 2021 Calendar Photography Contest

Thank you to the talented high school students and their teachers who provided the extraordinary photography featured in Bank of Marin’s 2021 Community Calendar.

Now in our eleventh year, the Bank of Marin community calendar is a long-standing collaboration between the bank, teachers and students in our communities. This year, it was impossible not to acknowledge the unexpected moments that shaped our lives. In light of these unprecedented times, the Bank created a theme for the 2021 calendar — Moments of Light – encouraging students to highlight their gratitude and perseverance in the midst of significant changes facing their local communities. We were pleased to receive nearly 150 submissions from students in the North and East Bay communities.

The calendar is distributed to over 10,000 customers and local businesses throughout the Bay Area. To obtain a free copy of the Bank of Marin 2021 Community Calendar, contact your local branch. Bank of Marin donates $250 to each winning photographer’s high school photography department.
