Handmade Awards 2019
CALLING ALL CREATIVES! THE MOLLIE MAKES 2019 AWARDS HAVE OFFICALLY LAUNCHED, SO ENTER TODAY AND SHOUT ABOUT YOUR HANDMADE BRAND
Calling all creatives – entries are open!
Celebrating creativity and talent is a huge part of our ethos at Mollie Makes. Every single issue we work hard to share the skills of a di erent group of amazing people with you, from designer-makers and illustrators to indie stores that showcase our favourite brands. And, we especially love being able to give back to these talented humans with our annual Mollie Makes Handmade Awards.
Now in their sixth year, the awards are our way of shining a spotlight on those pursuing their passion for handmade. From more established brands to those growing their side hustle, we’re here to help you take your business to the next level with the opportunity to present to industry expert judges and, for the winners, an impressive set of prizes to help you develop your skills.
The awards are free to enter, and open to residents of the UK and Europe. The closing date is 11.59pm BST on Monday 3rd June 2019, and shortlisted finalists will be invited to the Hotel du Vin in Bristol on Monday 8th July, so make sure to keep it free! You’ll join us for workshops, talks and more with some of our favourite creatives.
What qualifies as handmade?
Your products must be handcrafted by you or your team (other than entries for our Handmade Champion Award). This means you haven’t tailored, restored or repaired them, or assembled them from a kit without substantial alterations being made to the original design.
How do I enter?
Create a Pinterest board entitled ‘Mollie Makes Handmade Awards 2019’ and pin at least five pictures of your projects, bricks and mortar space, illustrations or creative services from your website. Use the ‘Description’ box of the board to tell us about your brand and the categories you’d like to enter. Then, email it to us at mol[email protected]mediate.co.uk through Pinterest’s ‘Send Board’ button.
We’ve put together an example on the website (details below), and you’ll find some top tips for entering online, and over the page. If you don’t have a Pinterest account, enter by emailing the info detailed above to mol[email protected] immediate.co.uk. Good luck!
