2014 contest winner
The Richmond Maritime Festival is delighted to reveal the 11th annual Richmond Maritime Festival poster illustration created by Steveston resident, Hazel Cheng.
Her depiction of a heron dancing along the boardwalk that leads to a tall ship will be used in a wide range of promotional materials from transit shelter advertising to street banners. The image was inspired by the Britannia Shipyards, National Historic Site and her experiences of the festival where she has volunteered as a face painter.
