Competition to create a new canvas tote bag for Ramsey

Fri, 17 Feb 2023

Ramsey Commissioners is running a competition to create a new canvas tote bag for the town.
The local authority currently has a design from Visit Isle of Man, however it is looking for a ‘refresh’ and would like submissions from ‘absolutely anybody’.
As part of the competition the successful artist will receive £250 from the commissioners for full use of the design.

He also suggested making the design competition a yearly initiative and for the authority to consider the potential for festive bags.
