Sanford Historic Trust Calendar

Featured Photo from Sanford Historic Trust Calendar

Now Available!

Sanford’s numerous charms are on full display in a 2021 calendar of black-and-white photos shot by professional as well as amateur photographers.

Now in its seventh year, the Images of Sanford calendar is a project of the Sanford Historic Trust. Each year, the nonprofit organization sponsors a photo competition with the theme, This Is Sanford. Thirteen winning photos are selected for the calendar – one for the cover and a different image for every month of the year. The contest is open to all, from novice shutterbugs using their cellphones to seasoned pros with high-end cameras.

This year’s contest drew 130 entries, says Kathy Hull, a retired art teacher who coordinates the community project with professional photographer Reg Garner. Members of the Sanford Camera Club evaluated the entries via a blind judging process.

“The objective of the photo competition is to show Sanford at its best and to record what a cool town we live in,” Kathy says.
The cover photo, a serene image of Monroe Harbour Marina, was taken by Sanford resident Denny Gibbs with a point-and-shoot camera. Other winning images include pictures of the RiverWalk, Centennial Park, downtown’s Magnolia Square, and moments captured at events, such as the St. Johns River Festival of the Arts.

Besides Denny, the other winning photographers were Jessica McCarty-Carvajal, Kathy Hull, Michael Hall, Jeff Ferrell, Tony Cerino, Wayne Bennett, Robin Sundwall, Reg Garner, John Pierce Jr., Michele Farfan, Andrea Cochran, and Jim Thomas.

Calendars are available for free while supplies last at several spots downtown, including the Sanford Information Center on First Street. For details, visit
