Have Your Say!! Second Annual Carry Awards
Today is the day that all of you – our devoted, carry-savvy readership – gets to have a say. Clear your throats, focus your energy on what really gets your fire burning and prepare to passionately fill in boxes with reckless abandon.
The Carry Awards mach #2 is a golden opportunity to recognize the role of innovation and expertise. It propels us to use our noggins and think hard about what makes great carry. You know, does it align with the ‘fitness for purpose’ philosophy? Is it versatile? Is it stylish? Is it ethically produced? Or is it churned out by soulless chumps who focus on the buck? It’s an epic amount of criteria, but it all counts. And you’ve got to swirl and ferment all of those principles around your skull before pulling the trigger. But you’ve got this, trust me.
What are we looking for besides great carry? We want new products and new blood. If a piece of carry got the gong last year, then sadly, it’s out of the running. If it’s been updated and given a facelift, then cool, it’s in. Click here for last year’s winners.
Why are these awards important? Because they’re unbiased, uninfluenced by brand-affiliation and are as close to a true representation of the best of the best as we can manage. Furthermore, these awards draw the right attention to the right crew. How? By introducing them to our amazing carry audience. Remember, makers are only as good as their audience 😉 And a savvy, outspoken audience pushes makers to drum up better product – it’s a win win.
