2013 NC Seafood Festival Poster Unveiled

We're less than six months away from the 2013 North Carolina Seafood Festival in Morehead City and the board has selected this year's poster.

This year's winner is "Cooking With The Chefs," painted by local artist Jim Storholt.

This is Storholt's third selection in the ten-years he has lived in Carteret County. He's the only artist to ever be chosen three times.

Stornholt says he wanted the poster to hit every angle of the festival. "I wanted to tie the seafood industry into the cooking part, which is why I had the shrimp boat in the background and the chef kind of looking out at the boat as he's cooking his creation. So it kind of goes full circle."

Storholt says it's an honor to be chosen because he knows how tough the competition is each year.

You'll see the poster all around at the festival.

WITN is a proud sponsor of the festival which takes place Friday, October 4th and ends Sunday, October 6th.
