Help bring our Elmer sculptures to life


In summer 2022 Belfast will host a unique herd of individually designed Elmer Sculptures as the centre pieces of Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail.


We are looking for local artists, designers and illustrators to create inspiring and engaging artwork that really helps our Elmer sculptures look their magnificent best.  Whatever your artistic style and approach, whether you’re a household name or undiscovered newcomer, we look forward to embarking on the creative journey with you. The trail offers a truly unprecedented opportunity to get your art showcased to mass Northern Ireland wide audience.


All submissions received will be shortlisted by our expert selection panel, ahead of a special matchmaker event, the first opportunity for sponsors and designs to meet. If you are one of the artists selected, you will be commissioned to customise one of the Elmer sculptures; creating a unique piece of art to be displayed next summer, at the end of the trail the sculptures will be auctioned to raise much-needed funds for Northern Ireland Hospice.


More exciting information on our Elmer sculptures is available in our artist information packs which contain full details on how to enter, as well as the template on which to submit your design.
