Looking for an adventure that let’s you cash in on your creativity?
Design the perfect Adventure Diva handbag for a shot at having it produced by the bodacious folks at “MOO“, and a little international acclaim to boot!
MOO is where I have my business cards done (insanely cool folks with some really unusual stuff to offer!) and they are sponsoring a new category in the “Independent Handbag Designer Awards“. It’s the only international design competition of its kind and is a platform for putting new designer talent on the map.
How many times have you gone digging through that bag of your’s, complaining about what’s missing, and knowing exactly what YOU would do to fix it? Now’s your creativity to work and maybe snap up an epic adventure to go!
Here’s more from the folks at MOO:
Arm candy wanted: Enter the Independent Handbag Design Awards
Finding that perfect bag for work can be a difficult task. If it’s practical, it’s not stylish and if it’s stylish, it can’t fit what’s important to you like your laptop or even your mini-pooch Snoopy. We all know great design can work wonders so that’s why we’re on the search for the next great work bag.
We’ve partnered with the Independent Handbag Design Awards on a new category – the Stand Out and Look Great Work Bag – and we want to see your sketch designs for an outstanding unisex bag. We’re after stylish-meets-functional creations that will appeal to global, on-the-go professionals. At MOO we also love surprises, so we’re looking for a bag that has a hidden secret. Go wild with your imaginative ideas!
The ninth annual awards ceremony takes place in New York on 17th June 2015 and is organised by Emily Blumenthal of Handbag Designer 101. The winning designer in our category will have the bag produced and you’ll receive MOOlah to spend on any MOO products, as well as guidance from our experts on how to develop your own brand. You and your bag will also be featured on our blog and social channels, and appear in full photographic glory on the glossy pages of the September InStyle magazine. The deadline for all entries is 25th April.
In addition to the MOO challenge, there are a variety of other awards categories you might want to consider, maybe landing the mentorship of a famous designer to kickstart your own wild and woolly new career in act two?
And if you’re really looking for an unusual adventure, and find you’ve got the chops, Handbag Designer 101 gives you the opportunity to sell your sassy new creations.
Just really love designer bags and looking for an alternative adventure? Why not apply as an Intern at the awards?
Good luck, Adventure Divas!
