Winners will be chosen around Easter

Eight practices have made it through to the next phase of a competition to design beach huts in Eastbourne which the local council wants to become visitor attractions and local landmarks.

A dozen were shortlisted last December after more than 50 entries were sent in. A public exhibition will be held next month in the East Sussex town with winners due to be named at Easter.

Five huts will be built in the Devonshire part of the town, to the east of the pier, and are expected to form part of a culture trail linking the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.

Among those on the list are Jak Studio, the practice behind  the Listening Project booth project for the BBC.

The competition is being run by Eastbourne borough council.
