23 August 2018 Competition, Featured No Comments

Calling all young designers!

We’re giving kids the chance to design their very own PEP shopping bag and, our favourite designs will actually be made into real bags and be sold in around 320 stores around the UK and Ireland in 2019!

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Poundland to support our partner charities, Tommy’s, Whizz-Kidz and Make a Wish UK in the UK and Make-A-Wish Ireland in the Republic of Ireland…

We’ll be donating 10p from the sale of every PEP Shopper designed by our budding young designers to the charities!

So if your kid has creative flair, read on, download the blank template and make sure you’ve stocked up on colouring pens!


Design us a happy bag…

Our partner charities are all about making children’s lives happier, so we thought that would make the perfect theme for our young designers…

They can make their bag design any colour, any style they like as long as their design is all about being happy! There’s a kid-friendly list of tips and ideas included in the blank bag template which you can download here…
Design a Happy PEP Bag Template

Here’s some we made earlier


How it works…

This competition is open to kids aged 5-17 years but a parent or legal guardian must be the one to submit the design and actually enter the competition on behalf of their child or the entry cannot be counted. There are two separate age groups, ages 5-10 and ages 11-17 and we’ll be picking one winner from each of the groups. The winners will be picked by a panel of judges from PEP&CO, Poundland and our partner charities.

To enter first you’ll need to¬†download the blank bag template and you can either print it out or save it to your own computer… It doesn’t matter if your young designer will be drawing on the paper or using a computer to make their design, both ways are absolutely fine!

Make sure you fill out all the details required on the blank bag template on behalf of your child. When their design is ready, complete the form below and you can either upload the finished design or send it to us in the post.
