Coles Bag Design Competition

Your Bag Design Could Win Your School $5,000!


The Coles bag design competition has now closed, thank you for your interest in this competition.

We received over 1000 bag design entries from primary and secondary school students across Australia.


The winning designs will be applied to the new range of sturdy, durable, multi-use shopping bags. These bags are great for the environment because they can be used over and over again. Then at the end of their lives, these bags can be recycled through the REDcycle bins at Coles. These bags will also be great for our community because even though we will not be donating all profits, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Coles community and charity partners.



Great Prizes for Great Designs


Each selected bag design will be rewarded with $5000 for your school to spend on an environmental or sustainability project. Plus a $250 Coles Gift Card will be awarded to the student who created the winning design. A total of 14 amazing bag designs will be selected.


How will the entries be judged?


1. The bag entries will be judged by a panel from Coles & our design agencies.

2. The bag entries will be judged based on the use of the design theme, creativity, attractiveness and desirability of the design.

3. The shortlisted designs will be selected in December 2017. The shortlisted designers will be notified in December 2017. The winners will be announced in March 2018.
