Judy Shillingburg: 2004 Seafood Festival Poster Winner

With Destin and its fishing heritage as her inspiration, Judy Shillingburg's artwork was selected to adorn this year's Destin Seafood Festival poster.

The poster's border is a chart of local waters. The shape of the Destin peninsula, a charter boat, popular fish and the Marler Bridge are featured in the artwork.

"What I've had in my mind for so many months was to take a chart and fade it, then paint directly on it," Shillingburg said.

This is Shillingburg's second Seafood Festival poster. Her poster career started in 1995, when her work was selected for posters for the Destin Fishing Rodeo and for Mayfest.

Carolyn Folley, community development director for the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce, said the festival had three entries for this year's poster competition.

"They were all so good," she said. "It was a tough decision to make."

The 26th annual Destin Seafood Festival will be Oct. 1-3 at the Morgan Sports Center. Advance admission buttons will go on sale Aug. 16 for $3; the cost includes admission to the festival all weekend. On the weekend of the festival, admission will be $5. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.

Headliners for this year's concerts are Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits, Eddie Money, and The Drifters.
