The International Craft Awards are 100% nominated and voted for by the readers of Crafts Beautiful magazine meaning these nominations are a true reflection of what the craft community feel. The 2015 awards received over 17,000 votes, and this year they have received over double the amount of nominations to last. To receive an award from the International Craft Awards is a mark of quality within the craft industry, providing a platform for crafters to let the brands, producers, designers and retailers know how much they value them. Create and Craft is therefore extremely proud to have been nominated for so many awards this year.
Tony Sheridan Create and Craft Chief Operating Officer, commenting said: “We are delighted and overwhelmed by the number of crafting categories we have been nominated for at this year’s International Craft Awards, the most nominations we have ever received.
“Here at Create and Craft, we are dedicated to help our customers cultivate their crafting skills, providing a flow of educational and inspirational content to help them on every step of their creative journey, whilst still maintaining the fun, family-like community which we know our viewers have come to love.
“We pride ourselves on bringing new and exciting products to the market; our customers want new and exclusive launches and we work hard to deliver these for them, continuing to provide quality brands, products and projects that will inspire, educate, and challenge crafters of all levels.
“Over the past 13 years we have worked tirelessly to continue to improve and grow Create and Craft as a business and I feel these nominations are a true reflection of that company-wide hard work and dedication. Without our exceptional team, it would not have been possible to have achieved these amazing nomination results.”
Now that the nominations are in, from 13th September through to the 6th January, crafters will have the opportunity to cast their votes for each of the categories from the shortlist of nominees. Votes can be cast either through filling in the voting forms in the Crafts Beautiful Christmas Special (on sale 16th September) or via the following link: www.createandcraft.tv/vote
