A supermarket is giving children in Northern Ireland the chance to design a shopping bag. The winner's artwork will feature on the retailer's brand bags, due to hit all 40 of its local stores later this year.

Lidl Northern Ireland - which plans to introduce durable, reusable shopping bags, made from 100% recycled plastic - will also give the winning young artist a £500 gift card.

Drawing inspiration from the world around them, and their own imagination, children are encouraged to get creative and submit a drawing, sketch or painting about sustainability - choosing from one of the following three themes: 'Reduce', 'Reuse' or 'Recycle'.

Angela Connan, corporate social responsibility manager at Lidl NI, said the supermarket is "looking for someone with bags of style to put the finishing touches on our bags and create a stylish design centred around the theme of sustainability".

"Whether you create a drawing based on reusing egg containers as seed pots, a painting of your family recycling glass bottles, or sharing a photo of how you have grown your garden into a haven for bees and butterflies, the creative possibilities are endless," she said.

Entrants upload a picture of their creation to the competition's webpage. Entries close at 11.59pm on Sunday, February 28.
