Pssst… It’s Awards Season again. Oscars? As toy collectors though, it’s all about the Designer Toy Awards. While there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, the DTA Nominations are now open in all categories. It’s easy to nominate your favorite artists, toys, brands, stores and yes blogs. In order to qualify, nominees must have been active (or released) between Jan 1st, 2019 and December 31st, 2019.
And… if you’re in the art toy industry please don’t forget to nominate yourself. It takes only one nomination to be considered by the nomination committees as they narrow the list of nominees down to the finalists which appear on the DTA ballot. Without a nomination (it takes only one), a potential candidate won’t even be considered as a finalist. So, best to be sure. Yes, we nominate ourselves, as do many, many others. While it’s on your mind, go nominate those that impressed you with their releases and contributions over the past year.
As in past years, the DTA Ceremony will be held in conjunction with this year’s Five Point Festival (5.30 – 5.31) in Brooklyn, NYC.
