Christian Retailing’s awards program is accepting nominations for 2013, its 13th season honoring the best products in the Christian retail market. Winners of the Christian Retailing’s Best awards—formerly known as the Retailers Choice Awards—will be announced at the International Christian Retail Show in St. Louis in June.
Companies entering products by Jan. 25 benefit from the Early Bird discount (for every five paid, get one free entry), but nominations are being accepted until Feb. 15, 2013. Nominating companies or authors will be invoiced for the appropriate entry fee. This year’s fee is $60 per entry, but no sample product is required as in previous years.
Nominating vendors or authors are asked to enter their best 2012 releases in more than 60 categories of books, Bibles, gifts, music, DVDs and more, along with products in the Backlist category. Click here to nominate.
A number of new categories have been added this year, including Games/Toys and Seasonal/Holiday in the Gifts super category and Fiction: Amish and Fiction: Biblical in Books. Click here for a complete listing of the 2013 categories.
Following the nomination period, Christian retailers and others in the Christian products industry—including authors, editors, literary agents and distributors—will be invited to vote. Voting details will appear in the March print issue of Christian Retailing (Click here to sign up for the digital issue.) and in the Christian Retailing Update e-newsletter (Click here to sign up for Update.).
