For the third year in a row, the festival has won a Gold Pinnacle Award for its commemorative poster. The 2016 poster featured artwork by Sandy Haight and was designed by the professionals at Bergsma Gallery in Bellingham. Each year the festival enters the IFEA Haas and Wilkerson Pinnacle Awards to see how we measure up against festivals with similar size budgets around the world. Our posters have won seven Golds since 1998.
In addition to the Gold, we were awarded the Silver for best new merchandise with our Artbooks which featured the 2016 poster art on the front.
