Poster design competition launched for third Cromer and Sheringham, Crab and Lobster Festival

An annual festival celebrating the fishing industry along the north Norfolk coast has launched a design competition which will see the winner's creation turned into the official poster for the event.

The Crab and Lobster Festival is a weekend-long celebration of the industry in Cromer and Sheringham and is described as 'a feast of fun' combining food, art, music, heritage and entertainment.

The competition has been launched to mark the festival's third year.

Kate Royall is helping to organise the it and said the team have been 'counting down the days' to the big day.

'The poster design competition is the ideal opportunity for locals, visitors, artists, children and community groups to get involved in this special event, which is beginning to attract national and international attention,' she added.

'I'm looking forward to lots of colourful entries landing on our desk and really brightening up the event.'

All entries to the competition will form an exhibition of designs which will run over the festival weekend of May 18-20.
