Knitting & Crochet
Cake Decorating

Food & Cooking

But that’s not all. We’ll offer three Craftsy Blogger Awards in each of the categories above, to recognize the top blogs in each specialty:

Best Tutorials
Best Photography
Best Craftsy Instructor’s Blog


How to nominate

We need your help October 1-14 nominating your favorite blogs in any of eight categories, such as sewing, knitting or fine arts. Choose the most fitting award for each blog, based on what you feel makes it special. Just four blogs from each category will move on to the next round, based upon votes from readers and the Craftsy Judging Panel, comprised of our editorial team and industry experts. Your nomination is important!

On October 15, we’ll announce the four nominees per category and award, and you’ll have two weeks to vote for your favorite blogs. Again, these winners will be determined by reader votes and the Craftsy Judging Panel.

On October 29, we’ll announce one Winner and one Runner-Up for each award and category, for a total of 48 honorees!


A valid email address is required to nominate or vote. You must use your own email address, and we’ll also email you to let you know 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!

What will Craftsy Blogger Awards winners receive? Each Craftsy Blogger Awards winner will receive:

  • 1 free Craftsy class of their choice!
  • A Craftsy Blogger Awards Winner badge to wear proudly on their blog!
  • Winners may also be featured on the Craftsy blog and/or newsletter, providing great exposure for their brand.

Can I nominate a friend? Absolutely! Share this post with your favorite bloggers so they can get their readers to nominate them.

Can I nominate myself? Yes! But you cannot submit the same blog more than once. You may also encourage others to submit your blog. Here’s a handy blog badge that you can use to tell your blog readers about the awards, in case they’d like to nominate you.
