Christian Retailing has opened the voting period in the 2014 Christian Retailing’s Best awards. Voting will take place from March 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014.

Authors and vendors have entered what they deem to be their best releases with more than 60 initial categories to choose from—books, Bibles, gifts, music, DVDs and more. For 2014, products were nominated in the super-categories of Bibles, Books, Gifts and Other, with categories including Devotional/Study in Bibles; Fiction: Amish and Nonfiction: Men’s in Books; Wall Décor in Gifts; and Curriculum: Vacation Bible School and DVD/Video: Movie in Other.

Now, anyone involved in the business of Christian products is invited to let their voice be heard through their vote. Owners and managers of Christian retail stores should note that voting is open to all of their team members, including volunteers. Christian retailers, authors, editors, literary agents, distributors, gift designers and others in the industry are eligible to cast their vote for the products released in 2013 they think are the best. Other products compete in the Backlist category, which includes all types of products and allows companies to enter older releases. 

To vote, visit and click on the link for the online ballot. Voters will be asked to judge nominations on the impact they have had on staff and customers, including their ability to:

  • ?speak to people’s hearts and evoke emotion 
  • ?open people’s minds to new ways of thinking 
  • ?encourage and affirm Christ-like living 

Introduced in 2001, Christian Retailing’s awards have been acknowledged as an important way of recognizing some of the most significant, life-changing products in the industry.

Results will be verified by an independent firm of certified public accountants.

The 2014 Christian Retailing’s Best Awards winners are expected to be announced in June at the International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta. Watch for details in Christian Retailing magazine and in Christian Retailing Update e-newsletter.
