The Categories

From new products and emerging craft brands, to big brands and social media, 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.

How It Works
  • Stage 1 Enter your products

    Simply complete the form by clicking below. If you enter an Elite Industry Award, we’ll let you know what we’ll need from you next. If not, we’ll let you know in due course if your product, brand or campaign has been shortlisted for an award.

  • Stage 2 The judging begins

    If you’ve entered an Elite Industry Award, your entry will be sent to that category’s judge or panel of judges. If you’ve entered a standard Craft Business Award and if your entry has been shortlisted, public voting will open.

  • Stage 3 The winners announced

    All the winners will be notified on 13th January and sent an invitation to pick up their award at our champagne reception at CHSI Stitches. There, winners will enjoy the opportunity to network with the biggest names in the craft industry and the craft publishing industry.
