Committee Members: Committee Members: Dov Kelmer, Benny Kline, Travis Lykins, Gary Rozanski, Vincent Yu, Keegan Rooney, Kyle Kirwan, Don Kratzer, Cory Rutter, Jason Freeny, Jack Muramatsu, Jeff Rawson, Yaniv Brick, Steve Braun, Sarah Churchill, Czee, Nick Curtis, Justin Cheah, Lee Funai, Rob Lumino, Katherine Park, Kevin Philips, Craig Spalding, and Trevor McIntosh

Together, our committees have created our Shortlists of 2019! Congratulations to all the finalists!

Voting in the DTA public categories is easy as cake. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Designer Toy Awards website and log in or create a new account. If you have an account but have forgotten the password, you can retrieve it here.
  2. Go to the categories page.
  3. Vote once in each of the six awards under Public Voting.

Tada! You've voted! Simple as that.

Public voting remains open until
Monday, May 16th, 2019, 12pm (noon) est.

Please note that voting more than once in each category, even if you've created multiple accounts, is grounds for all your votes being removed and, potentially, the party you're voting for being disqualified.
