The Working Waterfront Festival is asking members from fishing families to submit up to 10 photographs that represent the experience of commercial fishing families. The photos will be scanned and returned to the owner on the spot.

The scanned photographs will be archived and selected images will be used to create an on-line exhibit about fishing families. The 2014 festival theme is Ship to Shore: Celebrating Families in the Fishing Industry. This year's focus will be on the historic and contemporary role of fishing families, both on shore and at sea.

The 2014 Festival will be on New Bedford's Waterfront September 27 and 28. To submit photographs, call Laura Orleans, Director at (508) 993-8894 or email
