Our call for submissions is now closed. Thank you to the hundreds of artists who have submitted their designs!

Go head and shoulders above the rest!

Transform a three-dimensional blank canvas – an eight-foot-tall giraffe sculpture – with your artwork. Join the art trail and have your work seen and celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people.

Our artist call is open to all creatives from across the country, but we very much hope to engage with Edinburgh’s rich, thriving and diverse local arts community. We would encourage submissions from both emerging talent and well established artists, think BIG and get involved! Designs are welcomed in any medium – from traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic.

Whatever the art form, we’re keen to add fun, drama and a creative flourish to Giraffe About Town!
