Shrimp Festival Design Contest


Islanders love the annual Shrimp Festival held in March each year for over 50 years. This year, Islanders with a flair for graphic design have the chance to be a part of making it even more successful. The Fort Myers Beach Lions Club is holding a contest to find the official design for the 59th Annual Shrimp Festival to be held on March 11-12, 2017. The festival design is used on t-shirts, posters and all ads for the event.

Show off your talents and passion for the local community and this beloved event.

The contest is open to all members of the community. The chosen design will be the face of the festival and used as the official design for this year’s t-shirts, posters, website and advertisements for the event. The design must include images of Gulf shrimp, the official title of the festival (59th Annual Fort Myers Beach Lions Club Shrimp Festival), the festival dates and the Lions Club logo. Also it must fit on a tee shirt etc.

Submissions are due by Wednesday, September 21st, in digital format. The winning design will be announced the 1st week of October. Multiple submissions per designer are permitted. All submissions become the property of the Fort Myers Beach Lions Club. For inspiration and ideas, designs from years past can be found on the Fort Myers Beach Lions Club Shrimp Festival website at
