Etsy announces 2022 Design Awards finalists, 12 UK sellers up for $20,000 USD Grand Prize

Today, Etsy is revealing the 100 finalists of the fourth-annual Etsy Design Awards, the global award program that celebrates the highest-quality items on Etsy while spotlighting creative entrepreneurs from around the world. 

Selected from tens of thousands of entries from around the world, 12 UK Etsy sellers are in the running for the $20,000 USD Grand Prize Etsy Design Award or one of ten Category Etsy Design Awards to be selected by world-renowned designers at The Expert – including Jenna Lyons, Brigette Romanek, Jake Arnold, and more – alongside Etsy Trend Expert, Dayna Isom Johnson. 

Starting Tuesday, shoppers can visit etsy.com/designawards to shop the full list of finalists.

Also starting June 14, the public will be invited to vote for their favorite finalist to win the People’s Pick Etsy Design Award. To vote, shoppers can simply add the item to their favorites on Etsy, and the seller behind the product with the most new favorites during the voting period (June 14 – June 21, 2022) will be awarded the $5,000 USD People’s Pick Etsy Design Award.

To decide the Grand Prize Etsy Design Award winner and ten Category Etsy Design Award winners, judges will be looking at the craftsmanship, creativity, personal story, and branding of the finalist entries. Winners will be announced in late July.
