The Working Waterfront Festival recently announced that Jason C. Eckhardt of New Bedford, MA has won the organization’s 2014 Design Contest.

Artists were invited to create an original design which conveys the Festival’s emphasis on the commercial fishing industry, the working port, and the 2014 theme of Fishing Families. Eckhardt’s design will appear on the Festival t-shirt, program guide, and poster.
