Designs by three scupltors were considered by judges
Sculptor Martin Jennings has been chosen to produce a bronze statue of the poet Philip Larkin for the Paragon Interchange in Hull.
Jennings was one of three sculptors invited by the Philip Larkin Society to submit designs for the artwork.
Larkin, who lived in Hull for 30 years before his death in 1985, combined a celebrated writing career with his role as librarian at Hull University.
Designs by sculptors Graham Ibbeson and Jemma Pearson were also considered.
Jennings' work includes the statue of poet St John Betjeman at St Pancras station in London.
He said: "I'm absolutely delighted to have been commissioned to make this sculpture of one of Britain's greatest poets.
"Philip Larkin found his natural home in Hull and his name will forever be linked to the city. Erecting a statute of him here will reinforce this."
Each sculptor presented their ideas and a scale model to an audience at a hotel in Hull.
Their designs were judged on artistic quality, likeness to Larkin, uniqueness and compatibility with the location.
Carole Collinson of the Larkin Society, said of Jennings' design: "There is a good likeness to Larkin, both in stance and facially.
"We're delighted to be working with such a talented artist and look forward to unveiling a brilliant statute that will be worthy of Larkin and the fine city of Hull."
Network Rail and First Transpennine have granted permission for the statue to be placed at the interchange.
The unveiling of the statue on 2 December will form part of a series of commemorative events in Hull to mark the 25th anniversary of Larkin's death.
