The Welcome to Yorkshire annual land art competition is running again this year for the Tour de Yorkshire. Last year, beautiful land art lined the race route, with a piece of art celebrating the 200th birthday of Branwell Brontë (painter, writer and brother to authors Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte) being the eventual winner after an internation public vote. The piece was commissioned by Andrew Wood from Fields of Vision, and created with the help of children from Haworth Primary School in Airedale.
Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said:
“Stunning land art is now synonymous with the Tour de Yorkshire and it’s one of the many things that makes our race so special. In no other event do you see these imaginative creations on such a spectacular scale and people around the world love tuning in to see them.”
It’s a great way of celebrating the wonderful area we live in and community groups, schools and businesses are encouraged to join in. For details on how to enter please click here.
