The Craftys is an awards show (online) for crafters!
They explain it best so here is the excerpt from their blog post:
Awards season has plenty to offer TV actors, movie directors and jazz-fusion musicians, but what about crafters? They toil long into the night on artistic creations that may be gone in the gulp of a wedding reception or wrinkle of paper. The Craftys Awards, coming in spring 2014, is a brand new, exciting way to celebrate work in sewing, scrapbooking, knitting and many more creative disciplines.
Launched by CraftFoxes.com, The Craftys will give away thousands in cash and prizes to designers in 10 categories. This is a fantastic opportunity for talented indie designers to gain recognition from a huge online audience that may not know their work. Voters will be asked to choose their favorite entries in each category.
Our panel of celebrity judges will pick the winners from the finalists:
Timothy Adam (Handmadeology)
Brett Bara (Manhattan Craft Room)
Simone Collins (FaveCrafts)
Brie Dyas (Huffington Post)
Rachel Faucett (Handmade Charlotte)
Mark Montano (Big Ass Book of Crafts)
Andrea Zimmerman (Babble / Disney)
With the launch of The Craftys.com, designers and their fans are being asked to help pick the final categories, such as needlework, home décor, and paper crafts as well as best craft blogger, and best DIY Pinterest board.
I submitted a few of my creations to some of the categories.
