Snowdogs by the Sea was a highly successful publicity initiative to promote Brighton and Martletts Hospice.

The Snowdogs were a set of identical statues based on the Raymond Briggs character, The Snowdog', which was a spin-off from the classic animated Christmas story, The Snowman.

44 plain white snow dog sculptures were created, and then individually customised by various organisations. The finished sculptures were then placed on display around Brighton between 24th September and 27th November 2016, with the exception of one Snowdog which was placed at Victoria Station, London, the London end of the London to Brighton line.

A further 22 "Snowdog Puppy" sculptures were decorated by schoolchildren.

A Snowdog Trail leaflet and map allowed visitors to find the Snowdogs around Brighton, and a Snowdog Selfie competition challenged visitors to see if they could take selfies of themselves with every single Snowdog within a single day.

The initiative ended with a "Snowdogs by the Sea" Festive Farewell event at the Brighton Dome on 4th-5th December, where all 44 Snowdogs will be gathered together for one last time.

All the proceeds from the event will go to Martlett's Hospice, who will also receive the money from the Snowdog sculptures' sale.
