The Awards announcement and celebration will be held at the Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair, and that means there is a full year for nominations, voting and promotions – and we’re excited that you can be involved!

Celebrating the best in the industry

The Australian Craft Industry Awards celebrate the best businesses and products in the industry. These awards recognise excellence and celebrate the contribution of many individuals and businesses within the Australian craft industry.
We have several new categories in both the People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice sections to extend the reach of the awards across more of the industry.
The People’s Choice section is where the Australian crafting public vote for their favourite Australian craft retailer, craft product and their favourite craft educator.
The Judges’ Choice section celebrates everything Australian in craft – from business to innovation, books and people. Nominated products and designs must be of Australian origin, with nominations open to all Australian craft retailers, suppliers, distributors, publishers, wholesalers and guilds.

Organised by Expertise Events

Our aim with the awards is to support the whole Australian craft industry now and into the future, and we look forward to growing these annual awards each year.

How the Awards Work

  • Craft businesses – retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, designers and educators – can nominate their own business, service, design or product in one or more categories, where applicable.
  • Craft businesses can also nominate their favourite Australian craft magazine or craft businesses (new or established) they feel stand out from the crowd.
