As 2020 draws to a close, it is impossible not to reflect on the unexpected moments that have shaped our lives. In light of these unprecedented times, Bank of Marin has created a theme for the 2021 Community Calendar: Moments of Light.
Bank of Marin is requesting student photography submissions showcasing the new aspects of our lives in 2020. We would like an honest representation of life from behind the lens as people navigate uncertain change. How has your community come together? What were the uplifting and challenging experiences you or others faced? What does our new normal look like indoors and out? What were the unexpected “moments of light” that you paused to be grateful for?
We look forward to receiving your submissions. We are all in this together!
