The Craftys Awards, which celebrate the best in crafts, are returning for 2016 with new categories and a new slate of judges. Entrants win $200 per category and $1,000 for the Best in Show (which is given to one of the category winners).

To enter, crafters and creative enthusiasts can nominate their work or someone else's at

New categories for The Craftys include Baby Crafts, which celebrates all of those cute things made for newborns and toddlers, and Duct Tape Crafts, showcasing projects made with one of the toughest tapes around.

Finalists are chosen by The Craftys panel and then winners are picked by the team of judges. This year's slate of judges includes craft enthusiasts, like singer Lisa Loeb and world champion skater Tai Babilonia, as well as craft experts such as Mark Montano, Vickie Howell, Marly Bird and Amy Anderson.
