Dogs Trust presents A Dog’s Trail
A Wild in Art Event


Calling all Artists

Dogs Trust, in partnership with Wild in Art and the world-famous Snoopy, is inviting people to explore the city of Cardiff through an exciting new art trail in Spring 2022. As communities across the world continue to deal with and recover from the effects of Coronavirus, A Dog’s Trail provides Cardiff with a fully inclusive, fun and inspiring mass participation event promoting wellbeing, community spirit and the love of dogs!

Over 50 giant Snoopy sculptures will adorn the city centre, each adorning a unique design and together creating a safe, free, fun and family friendly trail. At the end of the trail, the Snoopys will be auctioned to raise money for Dogs Trust, our new Cardiff rehoming centre and the 14,000 dogs that we care for each year in the UK.

We want you to help us make this the most creative trail yet.

Each of our Snoopy sculptures needs to be transformed into a work of art and we are actively seeking submissions from the local and regional creative community and beyond. Designs are welcome from both emerging and established artists in any medium; traditional to new media, fine art, graffiti, illustration or mosaic. Designs will be shortlisted before being presented to our sponsors. Those that are successfully chosen will then be commissioned and upon completion each artist will receive a £900 commission fee, as well as the opportunity to showcase their work as part of this astonishing event.

Whatever your art form, we welcome your idea to add fun, creativity and innovation to Snoopy’s first ever UK trail.

Submissions are now closed.

Due to an unprecedented amount of submissions we regret that we are unable to accept any further designs passed the deadline of 23:59 on 1st July 2021.

Over the next couple of months your designs will be shortlisted by a panel from Dogs Trust, Wild in Art and Peanuts and will later go on to the Art Selection Event to be selected by a sculpture sponsor. We aim to notify all artists of the outcome of their submission by October 2021.
