Contest is in the bag

Creative award up for grabs at German show

MY BAG is the motto of the Creative Hands Award being presented at Creativeworld for the second year running.

The competition spotlights creative work and textile design with the search on at the coming Messe Frankfurt-organised show, from January 25-28, for individually-designed and hand-crafted bags.
Anything goes, they can be knitted, crocheted, sewn, woven, embroidered, knotted or wet felted, whatever material matches your creativity for a handbag, clutch, shopper, laptop or smartphone case, or any other way to carry things.
“Designer bags arouse yearnings, awaken interest in creativity and can be timeless,” said textile designer Silke Bosbach, the founder and co-organiser of the Creative Hands Awards.
“And this is exactly the direction we are taking with the second edition of the Creative Hands Award in 2014. After all, a handmade bag is something special – something heartfelt.”
To enter, design your own bag then send a photo of the self-made creation – not the bag itself – by e-mail or post together with the entry form by the closing date of November 28, 2013.
A jury will select the 20 most creative bags and the original bags will be shown at a special presentation at Creativeworld, which runs alongside Paperworld and Christmasworld at Frankfurt Am Main in Germany.
The awards ceremony, during which the three best designs will be chosen, takes place on the first day of the fair, and the winners will receive shopping vouchers for creative materials in the shop of their choice, a year’s subscription to Handmade Kultur magazine and a certificate.
Each of the 20 finalists will receive a reference book from the hobby and handicrafts division of OZ-Verlag and two admission tickets to Creativeworld.
Additional information and the entry form can be downloaded from Section Events of and the completed form and photo should be sent to
