A clan of decorated dragons are set to fly into Norwich next year - and today we are launching a competition giving readers the chance to design the mythological creature that will make the EDP and Evening News office its lair.

Following in the footsteps of the 2013 GoGoGorillas! fundraising troop of apes, next summer 80 dragon sculptures will descend upon the city to raise funds for children's charity Break.

The Evening News and EDP are sponsoring the dragon that will sit outside our head office, Prospect House, and we are now asking readers to get creative and send in their design ideas for our fiery beast.

We had a brilliant response for our previous design-a-GoGoGorilla! competition - won by reader Sally Adams with her Superman-inspired design - so we are looking forward to seeing the great ideas that GoGoDragons! inspires.

People of all ages can enter and both individuals and groups can take part.
