So you wanna be a handbag designer? Congrats on taking the first step! Our partnership with Belle & Bloom gives you the opportunity to design your own bag, but we realise you probs have some questions before you opt in.

Read on and we’ll address ’em...

Meet Belle & Bloom

They're a bunch of Aussie designers, life-lovers, and stylists who specialise in genuine leather fashion items, like bags, watches, wallets, and keychains. As our bbs at Belle & Bloom say, “Simple but glamorous, classic but fun, luxury but affordable.”

Ooh, local and lovely! Now, am I eligible to enter this comp?

If the bullet points below apply to you, you’re good to go!

You must:

  • Be a verified UNiDAYS member
  • Be 18 or older
  • Be a legal resident of Australia or New Zealand

The full deets and exclusions are in our terms and conditions. Look, we know it’s a dull doc, but it’s also a pretty important one, so have a read.

Eligible to enter? Do it!

I’m not a UNiDAYS member. Is it cool if I enter?

Technical question: what kind of format should I submit my design in?

A PNG, JPEG, or PDF will do nicely, thank you very much.

How many winners will there be?

Just one, so give it all you’ve got! Belle & Bloom will be making this bag for real and giving the winner a $500 gift card—this prize is LEGIT!

Ooft, that prize is fan-tas-tic. Can I enter as many times as I like? Pretty plz…?

’Fraid not. You can only submit one entry per person, so go all-out! It might even be worth including a moodboard and sharing your entry on social #hint.

Is there any reason my entry would be disqualified?

Yep. It’s gotta be an original entry—it can’t have been copied from another source. Also, your entry can’t be offensive or disregard the rights of a third-party.

Too easy: no plagiarism, no rudeness, no IP theft. What happens to my entry once you’ve got it?

Once we’ve got it, the judging panel will decide if you’re the winner. By entering the comp, you’ll be giving UNiDAYS and Belle & Bloom permission to use your design to show how much of a creative virtuoso you are! #humblebrag

How will you be judging this btw?

The panel consists of various legends from UNiDAYS and Belle & Bloom who have many years of creative and commercial expertise between them. They’ll carefully consider every entry—the concept's creativity and clarity; how the design fits within the Belle & Bloom range; the potential popularity of your bag—before picking the winner. They’re looking for passion, personality, uniqueness, and creativity in each entry.

Keen. When does the comp close?

This comp will run from midnight (AEST) on September 10, 2018 – midnight (AEST) on October 10, 2018. You have a month, Keen Bean. Get designing!

How do I know if I’ve won?

The winner will be contacted via email/phone/social within five working days of the announcement date. If the winner can’t be reached or hasn’t claimed the prize within seven days, the judges will select another winner. On October 31, 2018 the winner will also be announced on both Belle & Bloom’s site and here.

Aight, one last Q: Can I collab with a buddy on the design?

Nope. You can’t enter with a friend or on behalf of anyone else—this comp is all about you. Time to show us what you've got!
