Winter Shopping Bag Design Contest

The Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership invites submissions to our the first Downtown Kalamazoo Winter Shopping Bag Design competition. While downtown shopping bags have existed for several years, this is the first time the design of the bag has been opened to the public.

We want you to submit bold and original designs that reflect our beautiful Downtown Kalamazoo. Ask youself, "What does winter in downtown Kalamazoo mean to you?"

The bags will be used in more than 20 retail locations throughout Downtown Kalamazoo and aims to encourage our community to shop local and spend time in downtown. The winning artist will have their design screened on approximately 3000 tote bags which will be distributed throughout the downtown businesses, as well as win up to $250 in Downtown Dollars.

Below are contest details and an entry form. Entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. September 30, 2019 in accordance with the contest rules.
