The winners of the 2013 Teddy Bear of the Year (TOBY) Industry’s Choice Awards were announced in January at the Crossroads Doll & Teddy Bear Show in San Diego. This year’s Industry’s Choice winners are now the nominees for the Public’s Choice Awards, voted on by Teddy Bear & Friends‘ readers.
The photos of all the nominees can be viewed here – and now it’s your turn to be the judge! You can vote for your favorite in each category by filling out and mailing in the ballot included in the June 2013 issue of TB&F, or you can vote online. Limit one ballot (paper or digital) per household. The deadline for voting is July 1, 2013.
Winners will be announced at the Teddy Bear Artist Invitational in Binghamton, N.Y., in August and in the December 2013 issue of Teddy Bear & Friends.
