For the 4th Annual Designer Toy Awards ceremony, the DTAs have partnered with New York Comic Con to make the event part of New York Comic Con's Super Week. The event will be taking place on the night of Saturday, October 11th, with the doors opening at 10PM. It will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom (West 34th Street, New York, NY 10001), which is located a mere half mile from the Javett's Convention Center.
This year's DTA ceremony will be hosted by Jesse Snider, a TV & radio host as well as comic book writer, voice-over actor, and rock musician. Snider has previously hosted MTV2 Rock and The MTV2 Rock Countdown, as well as shows on Fuse TV and HBO.
Music throughout the evening and into the afterparty will be provided by Baam Bada, who will be creating a live DJ mix for attendees to enjoy, and a live performance by Decora.
Attendance to the ceremony is completely free, allowing fans to rub elbows with DTA Finalists and other art toy community professionals. While it is free, you MUST register to attend in advance. Those unable to be there in-person will have the chance to watch the entire ceremony courtesy of a multi-camera Twitch.tv livestream.
