There has also been some changes to the juried doll events. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of those members that have won past events to enter in the coming year? A new Masters category has been added to the competition (to read more about that - click here)! Not only do the presenters benefit from the shows but we who watch the events are inspired as well.
We are now reaching the Year End Event which will have a few changes to it too. For one of them - an Artist can submit for ALL three opportunities for the awards (unless for the Rising Star of 2023, the applicant doesn't meet the qualifications). That is three opportunities to win one of these large cash awards plus certificate! Also, if an Artist wins Best Doll of the Year,(as an example), then they are not able to win the other two awards for this year's competition. Each competitor is only eligible to win one of the three awards. That means at least three dollmakers will walk away with an award. This is a great opportunity for past professionals/masters to come back and compete for Year 2023. Each year past winners may compete again to win that year's awards.

Finally, with the new Podcasts, we now have another way to get your images on our Instagram and our Youtube channel. IADR is all about helping you get seen! For if you can't be seen you can't make sales or have your dolls enjoyed by others through a gallery. If you have any other suggestions on how to help IADR grow, I would love to hear them too. In the meantime, Happy Dollmaking!
