Back in the Spring  VisitEngland gave members of the public the chance to design a Gromit inspired by their home towns and regions. Once the winning designs were chosen, they commissioned artist and sculptor Vivi Cuevas to transfer them onto our Gromits.

The results were truly amazing and really capture the unique character of places across the UK, from cities such as York and London to regions including the North East and the great British countryside.

The VisitEngland Gromits were included in the grand auction that took place in October, helping to raise an incredible £2.3 million for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal!

 Vivi really enjoyed the experience of bringing our fans' creations to life. Here's what she had to say about taking part in the project:

"I loved the challenge of taking someone else's design and interpreting it onto the Gromit sculptures. It was really interesting for me to paint views and elements of different places in the UK."

Here are just a couple of the winning Gromits, but do check out our Facebook album to see all the winning designs and finished creations!
