Residents in east Cambridgeshire are being urged to vote on two new outdoor art projects set to take place in Ely this October.
More than 70 proposals from around the world have been whittled down to just five and locals are urged to cast the deciding vote.
Spearheaded by Babylon Arts and supported by Ely Markets and Ely College, the “Somewhere in Ely” project pitches can be viewed on YouTube.
Amy Wormald, project manager, said: “If you live or work in the Ely area please watch the video pitches and vote for your favourite.
“We have funding to pay for two of these artist ideas to happen – and it’s up to the public to decide.
“You don’t need any special interest or experience in art to have an opinion. Just take a look at the videos online and tell us what you think.”
The five shortlisted artists include Ely ceramicist Louise Beale, choreographer and body-popper Paris Crossley, Mike Hartley who makes kinetic sculptures, multi-media artist Mark Parry and artist/ designer Adrian Riley.
