PEOPLE across Keighley and the Worth Valley are being urged to get behind a land art installation as it competes for a coveted accolade.

The work – depicting Branwell Bronte riding a bicycle – by Worth Valley Young Farmers Club and Haworth Primary School, is among 12 pieces region-wide shortlisted in a public vote.

All were produced to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire, the third stage of which came through the district on April 30.

The Branwell Bronte artwork was part of a project marking the 200th anniversary of his birth.

Pupils and teachers at Haworth Primary worked with Andrew Wood – from Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands – to create the giant piece, in conjunction with the Worth Valley Young Farmers.

It was made from recycled plant pots, carpet and tarpaulin.

People have until midnight on Tuesday, June 13, to vote for their favourite, at

The winner will receive a trophy from Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire.

A second installation from the Bradford district is also among the contenders – it depicts a trio of giant ducks wearing cycling jerseys, which is now a permanent feature in Addingham Main Street.

It was commissioned by Bradford Council and Addingham Parish Council, working with artist Wes Wilcox.

Saira Ali, who led on land art projects for Bradford Council, said: "People have absolutely loved seeing all the land art created in the district for the Tour de Yorkshire.

"It has attracted a lot of attention from residents and visitors from all over the country.

"The people of the district have really got behind these creative pieces and encouraged us and worked with us on them, so we are delighted that both the ducks in Addingham and Branwell Bronte on a bike in Haworth have been shortlisted for this award. Come on Bradford, get voting!"

Sir Gary said it was a mammoth task choosing just 12 pieces from all those across the region.

"We were blown away by the sheer number, range and quality of land art which featured on this year's race route," he added.

"Images of these amazing installations were beamed right around the world and they really were a joy to behold.

"Not only did they highlight how Yorkshire people were embracing the Tour, they demonstrated the creativity, humour and ingenuity which our county is famous for and helped showcase Yorkshire at its very best.

"We'd like to thank everyone who has taken part and wish good luck to all those who have been shortlisted."
