Do you know someone in the toy industry who deserves to win a “people’s Oscar”? Why not nominate them for a Golden Teddy?
Inaugurated in May 2001, the Golden Teddy Awards were created to reward worthy individuals from all levels of the toy industry whose individual contribution and dedication over the years deserves public recognition.
Golden Teddies are awarded to candidates who have served the industry for more than 15 years. They are designed to recognise ordinary people with extraordinary talents, people who go over and above expectations and who are the industry’s genuinely nice people. The winners are announced and presented by the BTHA at special events up to three times a year.
Nominees need a proposer and a seconder and all nominations will be considered on their merits by a special committee within the BTHA Council. The committee will consider nominees currently working in the toy industry who possess a degree of ‘niceness, honesty and integrity’. Nominees can work in any sector of the toy industry, in any capacity.
