Norfolk nurse Edith Cavell, the boy wizard Harry Potter, and lots of brightly coloured rainbows are among the inspirations for the latest array of designs that have been sent in by readers for our GoGoHare competition.

We have received all kinds of great ideas for our competition to design our GoGoHare for next year's charity art trail through Norwich - and there is still time for you to send in your entries.

Following in the footsteps of the GoGoGorillas! and GoGoDragons!, next summer more than 50 GoGoHares sculptures will be dotted around Norwich and Norfolk in a trail organised by children's charity Break and Wild in Art.

The EDP and Evening News are sponsoring the hare which will sit outside our head office in Rouen Road.

Whether you are young or old, a professional artist or an enthusiastic amateur, we would love to see your ideas for how you think our GoGoHare should be decorated.

As these pictures show, lots of entries have already been sent in to us, and people have until September 1 to submit their designs.

Our previous GoGoDragon! competition was won by John Checketts whose idea saw the characters of St George and the dragon become one, meanwhile Sally Adams won our GoGoGorillas! competition with a Superman-inspired design.
