Over the past month, readers have helped us draw up a list of the best new creative tech that will go forwards to compete for the Creative Bloq Awards 2023. And we're now ready to reveal the shortlist.

The products below will compete in the second edition of the annual Creative Bloq Awards, which celebrates the best new tech that's emerged for artists and designers in the past 12 months. We created the list by asking readers and our own team of writers and reviewers to nominate their favourite products in 45+ categories covering everything from drawing tablets to cameras and craft tools to game design and laptops.
