The winning artwork will become the poster image for the 13th annual festival, one of Richmond’s most popular summertime festivals, which takes place at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site on August 6 and 7.

The poster image, to convey Steveston’s maritime heritage, will be seen throughout Metro Vancouver in print and online advertising, brochures, transit shelter advertising, site decor and other promotional materials over the summer. The selected artist will receive a $500 honorarium.

In April, the winning artist will be announced and the final artwork will be made public in early June.
