After a hugely successful launch in 2016, the Tour de Yorkshire Land Art Competition is BACK for 2017 and Welcome to Yorkshire is inviting businesses, landowners, farmers, schools, community groups - and anyone else with a creative spark - to get involved!
Land art is now a much-loved feature of the race and these amazing installations are seen by over 11 MILLION people in 178 COUNTRIES around the world courtesy of full, live TV coverage of all three stages.
Last year hundreds of pieces popped up in fields, playgrounds, market squares and car parks along the race route, and every one of them complemented the action brilliantly with their bursts of colour and creativity.
The winning entry was a 70-metre high, 40-metre wide painting on Sutton Bank entitled The Finest View. It was commissioned by the North York Moors National Park Authority and Hambleton District Council and showed a horse, ram and wild boar riding a penny farthing looking out over what James Herriot described as 'the finest view in England'.
Think you can beat that? Well we are now inviting a new batch of entries and we can’t wait to see your imaginative, quirky and humorous designs as the TV helicopters follow the peloton’s progress!
