Last year, you may have noticed our SU tote bags around campus and across the city (and just about everywhere else!), full of freebies and helpful information for new students arriving to Plymouth. Well, these sustainably sourced bags were designed by University of Plymouth Architecture student, Jessica Hancock, who won our design competition last summer.

After the amazing success of these bags, we're doing it all over again, and giving another lucky, talented student the chance to create and share their amazing designs across the city during Welcome Week!

So, if you are a University of Plymouth student who is interested in getting creative and having their design printed on hundreds of goodie bags, we would love you to submit your design proposal!

The competition is open to all current University of Plymouth students regardless of what course you are studying.

We’d like this design to reflect: 

  1. the theme of Plymouth

  2. our wonderful student community

  3. our award-winning sustainability at the university



The winner will receive:

  • Their design featured on 3000 – 5000 tote bags distributed to University of Plymouth students over the 2024 Welcome Week.
  • And a £50 voucher!




The design must be:

  1. Easily visible at a maximum size of 26cm (h) x 22.5cm (w)

  2. A single colour

  3. Provided as a PDF, ideally vector format

  4. Submitted via email to by 31st July, 9am.

The winner will be chosen by the Communications and Digital team and will have the chance to work closely with the team to make the final design based on the winning submission, before being announced on social media. We can't wait to see what ideas you have!
