DAE2011_Diamonds_logo_nomineeThe DOLLS Awards of Excellence program recognizes and encourages excellence in the conception, design and execution of dolls, and the readers of DOLLS magazine get the final say on who will receive the coveted “diamond” trophy.

You can follow the links below to see the finalists in each category, but the only way to vote for this year’s DAE winners is to fill out and mail in the official ballot bound into the pages of the September 2011 issue of DOLLS, so if you’re not a subscriber, now’s the time to pre-order a copy so you don’t miss out on your chance to vote!
