Design contest opens for Hull trawlermen memorial

  • Comment

[Expressions of interest to be received by 19 April] The STAND charity has launched a design contest for a permanent memorial to Hull’s trawlermen lost at sea

Architects and designers are invited to submit proposals for the £250,000 memorial - described as a ‘special place rather than simply a commemorative sculpture’ - which will be dedicated to the estimated 600 lives lost in the past 100 years.

The memorial will occupy a 1,260m² site on the St Andrews Quay waterfront. The installation - which will be open to the public and exposed to the elements - is expected to have a lifespan of at least 50 years.

While serving as place of remembrance, the feature will also act as an information point for local industry and communities.

A longlist of five will be selected to develop their proposals further. Three teams will later be shortlisted as finalists and granted a £3,000 honorarium.
