2018 Images of Sanford Calendar
The Sanford Historic Trust seeks black and white photographs for the 2018 Images of Sanford calendar.
Each year, the Sanford Historic Trust sponsors the Images of Sanford Calendar contest. The theme for the 2018 Images of Sanford calendar is: This is Sanford. All photographers of all levels are invited to submit their black & white This is Sanford photographs for consideration. From all the entries, thirteen photographs will be selected in blind judging by members of the Sanford Camera Club. Photographs of street scenes, storefronts, restaurants, waterfront, outdoor sports, homes, porches, holidays, and Sanford events, etc., will be considered.
The photos selected for the 2018 Images of Sanford Calendar will be framed by the Historic Trust and displayed in October at the Gallery on First, 211 E. 1st Street, Sanford during October, 2017. Those photographers selected will have the opportunity to sell copies of their photos at the gallery during the exhibit.
Photos will be blind-judged on the following criteria:
Winners of the photo contest will be notified in July. Submitted images will remain the property of the photographers, but permission is granted to the Sanford Historic Trust to use them for the calendar and for Trust promotional purposes.
Reveal: The winning images and completed Calendar "reveal" and reception will be held at Jeanine Taylor's Gallery on First on Saturday, October 28h 6-8 PM. All winning photos will be displayed and a limited number of "early release" Calendars will be available at that time. Photographers who have a winning image are encouraged to attend and have the opportunity to offer prints of their image for sale if so desired.
Coordinating this project are Trust members Kathy Hull and Reg Garner. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
