We are collaborating with local organisations to showcase the work of some wonderful creatives on our exclusive merchandise which will consist of:

  • tote bags
  • pins
  • bookmarks
  • greetings cards.

Here’s how it works!

Step 1: Email elysia@changesbristol.org.uk to receive your information pack.

This will include dimensions of each item, design specifications, as well as our brand font, colours and guidelines.

Step 2: Choose which item or items you would like to create a design for.

  • The design should follow the theme: ‘What about Bristol brings you joy?‘. This could be a park or natural space that you like to explore, a place you have created nice memories, a part of Bristol with a community feel etc. Think outside of the box!
  • When creating the design, you can use any medium you want. It could be a collage, a watercolour, a graphic design. You do not need to be an artist! We encourage anybody and everybody to enter.
  • You can submit artwork for more than 1 item, however for each item you can only submit one design. (For example, you can submit one design for the bookmark and one for the tote bag, however you cannot submit 2 for either of these)

Step 3: Submit your design!

  • For physical art, please sent it by post or drop it off at the office
  • For digital art work, please send it to us by email or We Transfer
  • We will also accept high quality full colour scans via email or We Transfer
