Get creative and submit a design that best represents our Australian lifestyle, famous landmarks and icons.

Samsonite invites the creative, the inspired, the aspirational and the imaginative, to lend their artistic flair to the design of a Cosmolite suitcase.

The competition

The Be A Samsonite Designer contest launched yesterday and hopes to see Australia’s best creative talent in the running for over USD$25,000 worth of prizes.

To be eligible, you must submit a truly unique design inspired by your view of Australia. Think major landmarks, lifestyle factors, distinguishing icons and those renowned Aussie traits that set us apart.


The most outstanding design in the Australian and New Zealand region will be selected via Facebook poll and receive cash and product prizes to the value of USD$5,000. Samsonite will also produce a one-off Cosmolite featuring the winning design.

The local winner will go into the running to win the global Be A Samsonite Designer contest, with Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, India and Singapore participating. The grand prize winner will receive two round-trip air tickets for two people worth up to USD$20,000. They will have the choice of visiting Paris, Milan, London or Belgium.

The grand prize winner’s design will be printed on a Cosmolite suitcase, produced and sold as a limited edition offering. The global winner will be selected by a panel comprising Samsonite’s Global Marketing and Design Department.
