An amazing array of great entries hopped into our letterbox for our design-a-GoGoHare competition and now we can reveal 10 of our 20 finalists.
We were inundated with lots of brilliant ideas, and later this week we will be asking readers to vote for their favourites and help us decide which design should be the winner and decorate the GoGoHare that will sit outside our Norwich head office during the summer 2018 GoGoHares art trail.
Our chosen hare will be one of 50 colourful characters who will be dotted around the city for the open air art event organised by children's charity Break and Wild in Art, and there will also be more GoGoHares spread around the wider county.
In no particular order, here are 10 of our top 20 designs by readers:
• An Admiral Lord Nelson hare designed by Jean Turner from North Walsham.
