Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Craft Business Awards?

The Craft Business Awards are the standard setting trade awards for the craft industry. In their 15th year, the Craft Business Awards are split into 21 categories that cover everything from independent shops and products, right up to big brands. We’re here to celebrate and recognise excellence within our vibrant sector.

How do the awards work?

Simply nominate your brand or product here and if your entry is shortlisted, it will either be voted for by the Craft Business readership or judged by our elite panel of industry experts.

How much does it cost?

18 of our categories are free to enter, including Best Independent Retailer, because although this is a judged category, Craft Business remains committed to supporting retail. This year we have introduced four Industry Elite categories whereby upon entering and being shortlisted, your product, campaign or brand will have the chance to be put in front of one of our esteemed judges. The cost per entry for these categories is £100 plus VAT.
