Tour of Britain National land art competition

The land art competition is a fantastic way for community groups, schools, businesses and landowners along the route to get involved in the race.

The tradition of creating land art along the route has long been the practice at the Tour of Britain, as well as other cycle races around the world.

The winning entry will be decided after the race by a panel comprising Mr Bennett, members of the ITV4 broadcast team and staff from SweetSpot. The winners will be presented with a trophy, and two runners-up will also be announced.

Each piece of land art also has the chance to be featured on TV coverage shown in more than 150 countries worldwide.
