Last year we helped launched The Craftys, an annual awards for crafts and DIY, and the response was thrilling and heartening. We received hundreds of thousands of votes and over 1,200 entries.

This year The Craftys are returning as a bigger event. Not only are there more categories —including Sticker Art, Decorative Painting / Mixed Media and Felt Crafts — there are also bigger awards. The Young Crafter category for creators under the age of 18 not only includes $200 for the winner. The winner's school will receive $500. 

Don't forget, the winner of The Best in Show receives $1,000!

Plus there are also giveaways and discounts from the sponsors:

-- The Felt Store is giving a 10% discount to anyone who uses the code "THECRAFTYS" at checkout. Plus entrants to the felt crafts category have a chance to win $300 in designer felt.
-- Creativebug is offering one free month of classes, plus a chance to win six more. Use The Code "THECRAFTYS" at signup. 
-- Red Heart Yarns offers prize packages to entrants and voters.
-- Beadaholique is offering a $200 gift card to voters and entrants of the Jewelry Category.
-- MakersKit is giving away a $500 collection of craft kits to entrants of the Best DIY Instragram / Pinterest Board.

Not sure which category you should enter? The awards are listed below. If you can't find one that matches your passion, you can always include your work in the General Crafts category.

The winners will be announced on November 6, 2014, by Mark Montano. Watch the livestream at
