Submission details and form for the 2024 Library Tote Bag Design Contest.

UMSL Libraries Tote Bag Design Contest. March 18-April 12. Image of a person carrying a tote bag that reads "Your Design Here."

Calling all students! The UMSL Libraries are looking for a simple, fun, student-created design celebrating the library to print on tote bags. These bags will be used as future prizes/giveaways at library events. The winner of the contest will receive their own tote bag as well as a free book!

Please submit your design between March 18th and April 12th. We will consider up to 2 submissions per person. Groups of up to 3 are also welcome.

Each design must be your own original work. Please do not plagiarize other people's artwork or use an artificial intelligence tool (e.g., Midjourney).

Additional guidelines:

  • The name "UMSL Libraries" should feature prominently in the design
  • Up to 4 ink colors
  • Imprint area dimensions: 8"W, 13"H (bag dimensions and material: 15"W, 16"H, 3"D, neutral-colored 6 oz. cotton)
  • No offensive language or graphics

The "Open Form in New Window" button below will take you to the submission form, which you can access by logging in with your UMSL SSO and password. Mobile users may need to scroll to view the button.
