Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is currently accepting submissions for the 2013 American Made Audience Choice Awards. With its mission of honoring and celebrating American Makers who have turned their passion for handcrafted, well-designed goods into small businesses, the Audience Choice Award is an opportunity for these creative entrepreneurs to be recognized across six categories: food, craft, design, style, gardening, and technology.
Nominations can be submitted on the American Made website and entrants are encouraged to share their Maker story through words, images and videos with the American Made online community. The nominee with the most votes in each category will receive an American Made Gift Basket as well as be featured on the American Made website and on Martha Stewart Living Sirius XM radio. From this group of finalists, the audience will choose the Grand Prize Winner who will receive $10,000 to further his or her business, a trip for two to New York City to attend and be honored at the American Made Awards, a photo and video shoot with the editors of Martha Stewart Living, and a feature on marthastewart.com.
