Will your design make the news?

Come up with a winning design for a sculpture sponsored by our Media Partner, the Nottingham Post, and you could see your work displayed as part of the Hoodwinked trail.Blank Hoodwinked robin sculpture

The Post’s Hoodwinked sculpture will celebrate news and newspapers. They have launched a competition to find the best design – and everyone is welcome to send in ideas.

They say:

“Anyone can get involved, regardless of ability to paint. It’s all about getting the best, most creative ideas and showing them off to the world.”

The deadline for submissions is 30 January, after which they will choose their favourite design to be applied to a blank sculpture by an artist.

To find out more, or to send in designs, get in touch with mailto:newsdesk@nottinghampost.com or katrina.smith@nottinghampost.com

Other ideas?

Artists with any other bright ideas for designs for the unique Hoodwinked sculptures can download the artists’ pack (including templates) and send them directly to the Hoodwinked team. Again, the closing date for designs is 30 January 2018.

Hoodwinked is led by Nottingham City Council in partnership with Wild in Art, a leading creative producer of spectacular public art events through the creation of uniquely-painted sculptures.

The free public art trail will run through the city from July to September 2018, with about 30 sculptures each sponsored by a business. It’s a twist on the tale of our iconic outlaw, Robin Hood, master of disguise.  The trail will bring tourists to Nottingham, encourage local people to explore their own city in a new way, and ultimately raise awareness and funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice through fundraising activities and an auction of the sculptures in October 2018.

Nottingham businesses wanting to find out more about sponsoring a sculpture can contact Caroline Elmhirst or Julie Walker at mailto:hoodwinked@nottinghamcity.gov.uk or on 0115 8764984/5.
