TOBY Awards

tobylogoThe TOBY Awards, sponsored annually by Teddy Bear & Friends magazine since 1986, rewards and encourages excellence in conception, design and execution of teddy bears and soft-sculpture animals. Photos of all the entries are reviewed by an esteemed panel of judges, who evaluate each submission on overall aesthetic appeal, excellence in concept, design and execution, and quality of material and workmanship; the highest-scoring creations in each category are selected as the nominees for the TOBY Awards. Teddy Bear & Friends readers then select their favorite nominee in each category and their votes are tallied to determine the winners.
