Pep&Co are looking for Irish kids to design their next shopping bag

Could your child be the next big designer?

Pep&Co are looking for children across Ireland and the UK to help design their new shopping bags, with the winning design being sold in stores across both countries.

As well as being a great opportunity to show off their creative flair they will also get to help a good cause as 10p or 11c from every bag sold will be donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The competition is open to kids aged 5-17 years but a parent or legal guardian must be the one to submit the design and enter the competition on behalf of their child.

There are two separate age groups, ages 5-10 and ages 11-17 and one winner will be chosen from each of the age groups.

The winning designs will then be made into real bags and be sold in around 320 stores across the UK and Ireland in 2019.

The winners will be picked by a panel of judges from PEP&CO, Poundland and their charity partners.


The closing date for entries is next Sunday, September 9 at 11.59pm and the winners will be informed on Tuesday, October 2.

If your kid is the next Michael Kors in the making you can find out more details on how to enter at the Pep&Co website.
