Nominations for annual TAGIE awards closing soon

As the 2017 Toy & Game Innovation Awards (TAGIEs) fast approaches, time is running out to nominate the best designers, marketers and innovators from the industry.

Nominations are set to close on August 30th, with winners to be announced at an awards ceremony on November 17th, held during Chicago Toy and Game Week.

The six categories now open include Toy Inventor of the Year, Game Inventor of the Year, Rising Star Inventor of the Year, Young Inventor of the Year, Innovative Marketing Team of the Year and Art and Design Visuals of the Year.

“The TAGIE nominations recognise the special individuals and teams from around the world who spend countless hours inventing, designing and bringing ideas for toys and games to life that everyone enjoys and that connects us to one another,” said Mary Couzin, founder and CEO of Chicago Toy & Game Group.

“The awards gala brings together everyone for an elegant evening celebrating these industry creatives for their vision, spirit of fun, philanthropy and humanitarianism.”

Five finalists from each category will be revealed on September 18th, when members of the industry, the general public and media will be able to cast their vote.
