We love supporting Martha Stewart American Made competition each year, in part because we’ve always had the mission of helping small local brands get to the next level; and in part because it’s how we’ve discovered so many of our favorite makers over the last three years that we feature here. And now it’s back! If you’re a maker, the Audience Choice Award is open for nominations in categories of crafts, design, food and style.
Win and you get a whole lot of press, a trip to NYC to attend the big MSL kickoff event, $10,000 to grow your business, and of course, sales through the MS American Made Market eBay shop.
Plus you get to join some of our favorite past winners like Heather Lins Home, Kalon modern kids’ and nursery furniture, Egg Collective, and more.
Even if you don’t win, your shop or business will be in front of a whole lot of influential eyeballs; we even scan the non-winners ourselves to find hidden gems to share. Check out the current nominees to see who else is in the running for the other ca
And if we can give you one huge hint that will help give you a leg up? Fantastic photography. Trust us. Sometimes that goes just as far as a fantastic backstory.
Check out the 2015 nominees in the Martha Stewart American Made or nominate yourself for the Audience Choice Award now! 500 finalists will be selected on July 10, with public voting in September and October. Good luck!
