It’s that time of year again, babes!! With only 117 days until the 2020 edition of the Designer Toy Awards, the Ten Year Anniversary Nominations are now OPEN!!! Yes, that means you can nominate your favourite artists, releases, plush, resin, online stores, media outlets (cough). Anything that was released or active during the period of 1st January 2019 through to 31st December 2019 can be included. To be released, the piece must be in hand (i.e shipped in that year). Pre-orders etc that are not delivered in 2019 cannot be included.
Artists Please Note:
You don’t need a friend to nominate you in any DTA category. If you feel your work is up there with the best of them in 2019, please nominate yourself. Right now the importance is getting your work in front of the Nomination Panel who will decide who makes it through to the list of finalists. It doesn’t matter if it is your momma, your pet dog or yourself that nominates your art. Just create the nomination.
The Designer Toy Awards hold a special place in our TTC hearts! Since we started blogging in 2013, we have either been a finalist or a winner in the Best Blog/Best Media Outlet categories – and we f’n love that our work is recognised in the community. We are super happy to see that the DTAs have made it to their 10 year anniversary, and we hear that that DTA ceremony is going to be a blast (as it is every year, if we are being honest).
Much like the Royal Rumble is the beginning of the Road to Wrestlemania, the Designer Toy Award nominations are the beginning to the Road to Five Points Fest in May, and WE CANNOT WAIT! Get your nominations in now, so that your favourites (or yourself) will get the chance to be assessed by the DTA Nomination Committee to decide who makes the DTA Finalists for voting later this spring!
If you want to support The Toy Chronicle, we have a number of options available to you. We have started to stock a wide range of releases that we think you will enjoy. Ranging from production pieces from Superplastic, to original pieces from our favourite artists. Purchasing one of our pins also really help. A quick, cheap way to also support the TTC is by making a small donation. These can all be completed below through our online shop. We appreciate all the support! Thanks!
