The North Carolina Seafood Festival Recognized by the NC Association of Festivals & Events for Five Awards
The 26th annual North Carolina Seafood Festival was held October 5-7, 2012 on the Morehead City waterfront. From the food and family fun to the sporting events and the entertainment, the NCSF had plenty for all ages.
The North Carolina Seafood Festival won five awards from the North Carolina Association of Festivals & Events at their annual ShowFest in Charlotte, NC. The awards include Best T-shirt, Best Print Media, Best Sponsorship Package, Best Event Poster by Mitchell Morton and the Green Award.
The festival worked in conjunction with Bellagurl, Inc., a marketing, publishing and advertising firm located in Morehead City, NC, to create the Best Print Media and the Best Sponsorship Package. The judges commented on the materials “were presented in a clean and concise manner without losing the total concept of what was important to the audience”.

Rachel Screen Printing was also awarded the title of Best Supporting Member to an Event, nominated by the Seafood Festival. “They go above and beyond in service to us and we wanted to make sure they were recognized for their efforts,” says Stephanie McIntyre, Executive Director of the NC Seafood Festival.
“The board is always working to improve and refresh the Seafood Festival to appeal to our audience and keep the integrity of what has been established throughout the years,” says Stephanie McIntyre, Executive Director of the NCSF, “so it’s really rewarding when you get recognized for it amongst your peers.”
