 “This year’s poster, by Judy Shilligburg, displays a beautiful geographical view of Destin’s amazing coastline and intercostals waterways. A compass rose is also proudly displayed within the poster, with a heart in the middle. "This symbolizes no matter where you are, home is always at the center of the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Beaches’and within the Destin Harbor,” explained Judy Shillingburg, watercolor artist and owner of Special Touch Gallery. 

“This year’s poster also features award-winning sport fish, shrimp boats, and seasonal anglers, which have become synonymous with our reputation as ‘the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.’”

The theme for the official poster of the 32nd Annual Destin Seafood Festival was ‘Heart of the Harbor,’ in a nod to the festival’s new location right on Destin’s docks at the Destin Fishing Fleet Marina, City of Destin Royal Melvin Heritage Park, and Fisherman’s Wharf. 

Shillingburg’s entry was chosen from three entries in a vote by the Destin Area Chamber membership at the June 11 Business to Business Breakfast. This is her seventh consecutive win, eighth overall. The poster, along with other artwork by Shillingburg, will be available for purchase during the festival.
