Call for Artists

We’re looking for established and emerging artists to design our herd! Our iconic ox sculpture is synonymous with our city, and, with the breadth of history, culture and sights Oxford has to offer, there is inspiration for designs wherever you look.

Each sculpture will be sponsored by a local business or community group, who will choose the artwork for their ox from the submitted designs. If chosen, you will be paid £1,000 and your art will be shown to hundreds of thousands of people during the eight weeks of the trail.

To get started, please download the artist pack, which contains everything you need to know before submitting your moo-gnificent design(s) to us. Then fill out the artist submission form, and finally email your designs to

Submissions close on 15 December, so there is plenty of time to think outside the ‘ox’ and help us to make OxTrail an event to remember.
