TOBY 2009 - deadline extension

Post by Paula on Fri Jan 09, 2009 8:11 pm

The TOBY 2009 awards, hosted by Teddy Bear and Friends magazine, have just announced an extension of their deadline for entries. Unfortunately I've mislaid the email (doh!) but I'm pretty sure the new date is now 1st February 2009 ... it would be worth double checking with the editor at www.teddybearandfriends.com

I think submissions can be made online this year, so there's definitely still time to enter a bear!

That's the one Sue. In fact, the TOBY's are one of the most prestigous international competitions open to professional bear makers.

I am tempted to give it a go but I have to finish paying for my heating and wanted to book a few stands at bear shows Sad

That's the downside to the comps, they do tend to be a bit on the pricey side ... that said though, if you are nominated, they are worth every penny because of the coverage you get in the mags - I see this as part of my advertising budget.
