Wanted: Aspiring Kiwi artists

Wanted: Aspiring Kiwi artists


Next week (Monday 1 September) The Warehouse launches a design competition to scout the country for aspiring artists to sketch an eco-inspired design for its reusable bags.

The winner will have their sketch printed onto thousands of reusable bags that will be available for sale in all 92 The Warehouse stores next year as well as winning a $1,000 The Warehouse gift card.

The designs will be judged by a panel including The Warehouse CEO Simon Turner, The Warehouse General Manager for Marketing, Lorraine Breheny and The Warehouse Head of Creative, John Luke.

The Warehouse CEO Simon Turner is thrilled to offer Kiwis the opportunity to have their sketch featured on an eco-friendly alternative to the plastic bag.

“This is the first time we’ve run a competition like this and it’s a chance for Kiwis to play a part in inspiring others to make the environmentally friendly purchase of a reusable bag. I’m looking forward to being on the judging panel and seeing some creative and fun entries that capture an eco-inspired view of the world,” said Mr Turner.

The new-look reusable bags will be sold for $1.49 and 20 cents from every purchase will go to The Warehouse neighbourhood community partners, selected by each store. Currently proceeds from 10 cent plastic bag purchases are donated to neighbourhood community partners through the token voting units, which will also be utilised for the 20 cent donations.

Mr Turner says: “Supporting the community is in The Warehouse’s DNA. It’s a huge motivator for our team and reflects our belief that good businesses need good societies and vice versa. The new-look reusable bags will be a huge benefit to our environment and our community.”

The design competition opens for entries between 1 – 19 September. To enter the competition you must create a hand-drawn design using a marker pen on the template found at thewarehouse.co.nz/bagdesign. The winner will receive a $1,000 The Warehouse gift card and two finalists will receive a $300 and $200 The Warehouse gift card respectively.
