Announcing the Craftsy Blogger Awards 2015!

Are you feeling the post-holiday blues? This January, Craftsy wants to keep the celebration going — and maybe put the gym off for a few extra minutes — by honoring the bloggers from around the web who inspired us throughout 2014. There are so many wonderful individuals who work hard to bring you fun content, beautiful images and fresh perspectives every week. Show your appreciation by nominating your favorite blogger today, and get entered for a chance to win an online Craftsy class of your choice just for voting!

How to vote

Make your voice heard from January 9-20, 2015! Nominate your favorite blogs in any of the listed categories, based on what you really loved about their posts. Only the top four blogs per each award and category will continue onto the next round of voting. The judging process is determined 50% by your individual votes and 50% by our panel of expert judges, so your vote is VERY important!

As an added bonus, you’ll be entered to win a FREE Craftsy class just for voting!

On Friday, January 23, we’ll announce the top four finalists from each category and award. Then, you will have one week to vote for the blogs that wowed you the most this year. As in the first round, the winners of the second round will be determined by reader votes and the Craftsy Judging Panel.

On January 30, we’ll announce one winner and one runner-up for each award and category!

Rules

A valid email address is required to nominate or vote. You must use your own email address, and be sure to subscribe to the Craftsy blog to receive an email when the voting round begins.

Nominees must suit the category they are placed in. Please choose the category that best fits the blog (i.e. sewing or quilting, if both are covered). The Best Instructor’s Blog Award is open to Craftsy instructors only, and it is also the only award that will be determined 100% by your votes!

What can you receive for nominating a blog?

When you nominate your favorite blogger you’ll be entered for a chance to win a free online Craftsy class!

(In the meantime, be sure to check out our growing selection of FREE mini-classes.)

What will Craftsy Blogger Award winners receive?

Each Craftsy Blogger Award winner will receive:

  • 1 free Craftsy class of their choice
  • A Craftsy Blogger Award Winner badge to wear proudly on their blog
  • Winners will be featured in an announcement post on the Craftsy blog, providing great exposure for their brand
