Design shortlisting begins

In September we put the call out to artists to submit designs for The Short Tail Trail hares and tortoises, with a deadline for submissions on 31 October.

We contacted artists from around the country by email and social media. We reached out to those who submitted designs previously to The Big Trunk Trail, and those who have worked with Wild in Art in the past. We contacted local art groups and asked for their help to spread the word.

It was exciting to see the designs come in and when the deadline arrived we had received over 200 designs!

We are so grateful to the artists who gave their time and creativity and all those who helped to pass the message on.

Over the coming weeks before Christmas we will work with Wild in Art and with our Project Steering Group to shortlist all of the designs.

In January we will be inviting our Partners and Sponsors to view the shortlisted designs and to choose which one they would like to see painted on their sculpture for the trail next summer.

We can’t wait to see which designs will be chosen and to work with the artists to see the sculptures brought to life for the trail.
