It's very simple and will only take minutes to enter the products that have helped you in your art and creative design this year. Simply visit the Creative Bloq Awards 2022 website (opens in new tab) and nominate in the preferred section, using the drop down menus.

To help you or get inspired, why not take a look at some of our in-depth buying guides and features. The best laptop for drawing would be a good place to start. Crafters should take a look at our guides to the best cricut machines and the best sewing machines.

Once the nominations phase is completed we'll whittle down the list to the best five products in each category and the judging panel will decide on the winners. You can find a complete breakdown of the process on the Creative Bloq Awards 2022 website (opens in new tab).
