We are delighted to announce that we’ve been nominated for the Craft Awards 2016! It’s been a busy and successful year for us and it’s lovely that it’s been recognised through our nominations. Craftwork Cards has been nominated for the Best Independent Store (North) and for the Favourite Papercraft Range and we’d love it if you could vote for us!
The awards are 100% nominated and then voted for by the readers who really care about their hobby, receiving over an amazing 17,000 votes last year alone. The International Craft Awards are now well established as a genuine and true mark of quality within the craft industry, providing a platform for consumers to let the brands, producers, designers and retailers know how much they value them.
As well as commemorating big names in the industry, the International Craft Awards also recognises and celebrates the smaller independent stores across the UK. The Awards provide a channel for Crafts Beautiful & PaperCrafter readers and indeed the crafting community, to voice their preferences and communicate this to all the people who work so hard to provide and create their experiences, materials and inspiration.
Presentations of the awards to the winners are carried out every year at the Craft, Hobby & Stitch International show, NEC Birmingham in February, and it is also an opportunity to meet the teams behind the UK’s best-selling Craft magazines.
The nomination stage has now closed for the 2016 awards and the nominees will first be featured in the Christmas special issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine, which goes on sale on 16th September. The voting stage will also commence on this date and close on 6th January.
Please vote for us here! Voting opens 13th September.
