They might be black and white in the wild but a waddle of colourful penguins will be coming to Christchurch this summer – and you can help choose the final line-up.
The Pop Up Penguin project will see 115 specially designed sculptures located across the city from November.
The Wild in Art trail will include penguins painted by 50 established and up and coming artists and they will be in place for nine weeks, giving locals and visitors the chance to see them all.
Among the artists taking part is Indonesian artist Zulfirman Syah who survived the March 15 mosque attacks.
Stuff is inviting you to help commission one of the sculptures by voting for your favourite from five design finalists. Voting can be done here from midday on Monday until midday on Sunday, September 27.

Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.
About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.
To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.
Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.
