GIN & JACQIE's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign September 08 2017

It's almost October, and we all know what that means! October is the official Breast Cancer Month: the time to uphold those of us affected with breast cancer, to celebrate their strength and determination, and to spread awareness on the symptoms and prevention methods. To commemorate this special month, GIN & JACQIE is hosting a bag designing competition. If you're good at arts and crafts, or if you feel strongly about breast cancer, we invite you to participate! The competition will be held from 6 September to 12 October 2017 and this year's theme is "Creating Awareness Through Art". Each participant will be given a plain black tote bag to decorate or redesign however they wish, as long as they incorporate the signature PINK RIBBON in their final submission. After a round of online voting, 10 entries will be shortlisted for our panel of judges to pick the top 3 winners! All entries will be auctioned off by GIN & JACQIE, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Sarawak Breast Cancer Support Group!

You can read more about the rules, design criteria, and prizes here.

And when we say "redesign", we really mean it! Participants are encouraged to totally restructure their tote bags and express their creativity. You can even cut up the bag, sew it into a clutch or pencil case, or make it into a totally different product; the only limit is your imagination! Here's a few ideas to get you started:
