We launched a facebook competition inviting the public to vote for their favourite South Gloucestershire Gromit which included six full size and nine mini canine versions which were part of the summer arts trail Gromit Unleashed. Nine primary schools took part and their impressive artworks were displayed at various South Gloucestershire locations including the Science Park at Emersons Green and the University of the West of England Frenchay campus.

In the end, the Emersons Green Primary School design was voted the best.
