Submission extension - gateway bollards

The MyProm Project team, in conjunction with The Isle of Man Arts Council, have been overwhelmed by the response to the gateway bollards art competition. Thank you to everyone that submitted their designs.

In response to a number of queries relating to the deadline of Wednesday 2 January 2018 it has been agreed that entries will be accepted up to Monday 7 January 2019 at 5pm. No further extension will be permitted. Submissions need to be dropped to the MyProm Project office, Ground Floor, Sea Terminal, Douglas or by emailing

The Department of Infrastructure will be responsible for the manufacture, installation and maintenance of both the marker posts and artwork with the winning designs will appear on the side panels of the marker posts

The bollards will indicate the entrance points to the low traffic speed area, at the southern end of Loch Promenade and the northern end of Harris Promenade. Made of granite, they will be 1.4 metres tall and have an embossed Celtic Knot design on the top. Each of the four bollards will feature two side panels, 20cm wide and 80cm tall, which will carry the winning designs.

The project is being supported by the Isle of Man Arts Council, with chairman Marlene Maska MLC and members Dave Armstrong and Phil Chadwick comprising the judging panel.
