Whittled down from over 700 entrants by the Designer Toy Awards's Nomination Committee, comprised of over two dozen industry professionals, the 4th Annual DTA's list of finalists will be announced during a special Toy Break broadcast on Friday, August 15th, 2014 at 1PM Pacific time (that's 4PM Eastern). Scheduled to coincide with the special Toy Break video being launched, the Designer Toy Awards will also begin allowing voting in the six community voted categories: Artist of the Year (Fan Choice), Custom of the Year (Fan Choice), Toy of the Year (Fan Choice), Best Blog, Best Toy Store, and Best Online Toy Store. Voting in these categories will remain open until September 1st, though — unlike previous years — fans can only vote once in each category for the duration of the voting period… so be sure to make your voice be heard and your vote count!
Point of clarity: For the 4th Annual Designer Toy Awards, fans can vote in six of the categories — Artist of the Year (Fan Choice), Custom of the Year (Fan Choice), Toy of the Year (Fan Choice), Best Blog, Best Toy Store, and Best Online Toy Store — but they can only vote once in each, not daily as in previous years.
