DOLLS will complete the DOTY Awards process for 2012 by publishing the Public Choice ballot in the June issue of the magazine, which will be released in early May. Winners will be announced this fall. In addition, the two awards programs will be combined next year, with registration for the 2013 competition opening this fall.
“As we had the chance to talk with doll-industry professionals at the IDEX show in Orlando, Fla., in late January, it became clear to us that we could not conduct two separate awards programs in the same year and still maintain the high standards that both artists and collectors have come to expect from the DAEs and the DOTY Awards,” said DOLLS Publisher Carie Ferg.
“Instead, as we work to combine the best of both magazines into the new monthly DOLLS, we will plan a single combined awards program for 2013 and take advantage of this opportunity to solicit input from doll artists and manufacturers on categories, scheduling, and other concerns before the 2013 awards program is opened for entries this fall.”
