Designer Toy Awards will have it's 6th annual ceremony, celebrating the Designer Toy world. Nominations for the DTAs are now open and registered users can begin nominating his/ her favorite artists, blogs, toy shops, collections and more. Something new for this years DTAs is the new award for "Best Non-Licensed" toy. This new category is geared towards the resin slingers and bootleg specialists who often create new toys, using an unofficially licensed or bootlegged IP. Whether or not this includes custom multiples inspired by entertainment IP is really up to the DTA Nomination Committee who will filter all of the nominations down to a list deemed appropriate. So, for those who think they know of an artist who deserves consideration to be nominated, head on over to the DTA website, register and submit some nominations. Nominations are only open until August 6th, 2016, so don't delay and start nominating.
