California Strawberry Festival poster unveiled
Graphic art chosen to represent the 30th annual event
The California Strawberry Festival isn't until May, but events to get you to mark your calendars already underway.
Today organizers of the 30th-annual festival unveiled the award-winning poster.
Artist Raya Dejan's graphic work of art was one of 65 entrees. The Westhills resident started studying art as a child growing up in Iran. Dejan was awarded a check for $2,000 and a tropical vacation getaway during a luncheon today at Yolanda's Mexican Café in Oxnard.
Her artwork will be featured on festival T-shirts, posters and merchandise on May 18 and 19, 2013 at Strawberry Meadows of College Park (3250 Rose Ave., Oxnard).
In honor of the festival's theme: "30 years of goodness" there will be 30 contests.

The nonprofit organization that runs the festival has donated more than $4 million to charities and scholarships.
