The 2018 Designer Toy Awards have officially launched their nomination period for the 8th annual award ceremony. Running from now until March 12th 2018 at 6PM EST, nominations can be submitted through the above linked website. This year's awards will accept nominations for releases, artists, and companies, that were active from January to December 2017. If you're so-inclined, you can always nominate this little site that's been online well over those 8 years and has yet to win anything resembling a DTA...but no hard feelings...

The finalists for the 7th Annual Designer Toy Awards have been announced and public voting is now allowed. Don't feel like you need to rush to vote for us (yeah...we're never nominated for the DTAs). I take my anonymity - especially after doing this for 13 years - as a badge of honor.
