Creative type and artists are being given more time to enter the Eastern Daily Press’ competition to design a gorilla and have it displayed in the city next year.
The closing date to design a gorilla is now Monday November 26 when the EDP’s. judges will decide which creation will be painted on to the five feet tall, and three feet wide animal.
The gorilla will form one of the 50 large animals leading a trail around the city centre next summer in aid of the children’s and young person’s charity, Break.
And like the elephant trail in 2008, the animals need to have bright, colourful and imaginative designs etched on to their bodies.
We have already had lots of entries submitted, from children and adults - but we want more.
Martin Green, Break fundraising officer and manager of the project for the charity, said: “We are really pleased with the level of sponsorship and level of interest in the competition.
“And we are looking forward to even more competition entries coming in.”
Local companies sponsoring a gorilla will be working with skilful artists to create a fitting design for the fibreglass gorilla they are sponsoring.
Once you have completed your gorilla masterpiece, written around 100 words about your design, read the terms and conditions, and post it all back to us at Design a Gorilla, Editorial Department, Prospect House, Rouen Road, Norwich, NR1 1RE.
Or if you don’t have access to a computer, come to our offices at the above address and pick up a print out.
The competition closes on November 26.
