Design a Footprint Bag

Do you have a creative streak? Do you want the world to see your work? Well, we’re giving you the chance to get those creative juices flowing in our first ever design a bag competition! Some of you may have seen our lovely canvas Footprint bags at travel shows and on social media – they feature the Footprint logo. But not for long! We’ve decided that one side has just been waiting for a unique design from one of our lovely travellers. We’d love you to send us a Latin America-inspired design; for inspiration, why not pick a theme from the below list?:

  • Wildlife: think llamas, tortoises, blue-footed boobies…
  • Architecture: from the salt cathedral in Colombia to the ancient Machu Picchu and beyond
  • Myths and legends: why not base your design around the Tunda, the Patasola or the Curupira?
  • Food and drink:  churrasco, empanada, feijoada…there are endless delicious designs to create!
  • Carnivals: many of us think of carnivals when we think of Latin America, and these amazing displays of flamboyance and celebration could inspire some beautiful artwork
  • Landscapes: glaciers in Patagonia, the Iguazu falls in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia…these are just a few of the most famous landscapes you could use as inspiration
  • Textiles: the designs of the textiles made throughout Latin America could provide amazing material (no pun intended) for your design

This is by no means an exhaustive list – if Latin America makes you think of something else entirely, then we want to see that too!

To enter, just create a design - either one-colour or two-colour, but no more, please! -  on your PC or by hand, and then submit it as a PDF (scanning it in, if the design is created by hand) by sending it to We’ll be closing the competition at the end of December, so make sure you get your designs in by then!

The winner will get to see their design printed on Footprint bags, and will of course receive a bag containing a Footprint book of their choice.

Anyone from anywhere in the world can enter, and each entrant can submit up to two designs. See below for some inspiration - but please feel free to create something entirely different.

Happy creating!
