ST. LOUIS, Mo.—Nominations are now open for the 2019 REGGIE Awards, which recognizes excellence and progress in the garment decorating industry.
The 2 Regular Guys podcast accepts entries until Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. CT, and winners are decided based on votes cast by the community.
There are 10 categories for 2019, as well as an open field to submit a new category. Interested parties can send entries via the form on the 2 Regular Guys website. Voting then opens in November, and the podcast announces winners in December.
"The REGGIES are a positive way of recognizing outstanding work in the industry," says 2 Regular Guys podcast co-host Aaron Montgomery. “There’s a lot of fantastic work being completed within the garment decorating and personalization industry, and the REGGIES shine a light on individuals and businesses who deserve to be recognized. We keep it light—it’s not meant to be a cut-throat competition. It’s a ton of fun and builds more camaraderie and support among our decorator’s community,” Montgomery adds.
