January 9th, 2017 is the final day of nominations for the Crafty Awards! The Craftys honor the best craft projects, bloggers, and designers. So, it’s like the red carpet for crafters. Plus, unlike the red carpet in Hollywood, YOU and your favorite crafters can win awards!
This year’s Crafty Awards feature a variety of categories like knitting, crochet, sewing, general crafts, edible crafts, jewelry, baby crafts, and more! The nomination process is simple. You can nominate yourself or someone else, and you do not need to have a blog to win! In fact, you only need great photos and a description of your craft project to enter and potentially take home a prize.
Prizes are awarded and will be announced during a special live broadcast in New York City in February.
The winner in each category will receive $200, and the “Best in Show” project will win $1,000. This is a great opportunity to receive recognition for you and your favorite bloggers.
The deadline for nominations is January 9th, 2017. Click here for the nomination form!
A panel of familiar crafting faces will judge The Craftys. Judges for the event include Yolanda Soto Lopez, Beth Kingston, Ed Roth, Galit Lebow, Marisa Pawelko, Marly Bird, Vickie Howell, Mark Montano, and Amber Kemp-Gerstel. HGTV’s Laurie March, world champion skater Tai Babilonia, and singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb will also be in judges’ chairs for this year’s awards!
Your favorite craft companies, including Darice, Red Heart Yarn, Tuttle Books, FaveCrafts, TueNight, Babble, FoodStirs, and more are also involved. It’s going to be a virtual party, and you’re all invited.
