The Categories

From new products and unbeatable trade websites, to big businesses and popular craft books, if you work in the craft industry, we have a category (or more) that you will be eligible for. Most of our categories are free to enter, with the exception of our Elite Industry Awards, where you can pay to have an industry expert judge your entry and if you win, enjoy extra publicity as a result.
