Submissions are open! Have you entered yet? The Mollie Makes Handmade Awards are open and they want to see your work!
Mollie Makes magazine is three years old now – can you believe it? So they’re celebrating by launching the Mollie Make Handmade Awards.“We want to give all you movers and makers a chance to shine, partly as a way of saying thank you for your incredible support, and also to give back to the community we love. It’s been our pleasure to showcase the most innovative designers and makers in the handmade community since we launched, and now we want to give you prizes!”
They have five categories and it’s completely free to enter:
• The Youth Award
• The Start Up Award
• The Established Business Award
• The Social Enterprise Award
• The Creative Idea Award
You’ll also receive a free Etsy store listing (for your first 20 products), and 30% off Moo business cards just for having a go. Look on the Mollie Makes website for the criteria and prizes for each category – you can enter more than one!
Amongst other prizes, all the winners will receive a free magazine subscription and editorial coverage in Mollie Makes.
The closing date is May 25 and the awards will culminate on June 11 at a filmed event at the Proud Archivist in London, where the judges will pick a winner from a shortlist of entries. Go on, we’d be super proud to see some patchwork and quilting in there, so give it a whirl!
