About the Dolls Awards of Excellence
The DAE competition recognizes and encourages excellence in the design and creation of dolls. Photos of all the entries are reviewed and rated by professionals within the doll industry, who evaluate each submission on overall aesthetic appeal, excellence in concept, design, and execution, and quality of material and workmanship. The highest-scoring creations in each category receive the DAE Industry’s Choice Awards and become the nominees for that year’s Public’s Choice Awards, voted on by DOLLS readers.
DOLLS will begin accepting entries for our 2022 DAE competition January 10, 2022 — go to dollsmagazine.com/dae to read the complete rules for the competition.
