St. Louis, Mo. – The 2 Regular Guys podcast is pleased to announce nominations are now open for the 2018 Annual REGGIE Awards, which recognize excellence and progress in the garment decorating industry. Entries close on November 15, 2018 at 5pm CST.
Since its inception in 2013, the REGGIE Awards have been embraced by industry professionals, listeners of the 2 Regular Guys podcast and followers of the garment decorating and personalization industry. For six years, the REGGIES have been run for this community, and the winners of the awards are decided by the votes they cast.
The success of the REGGIES has led to the award categories increasing from eight to 10 this year, with the addition of two new divisions: Best Decorated Item and Most Influential Young Star, which is open to professionals under 40 years of age.
Nominations are competed by simply filling an online form, easily found on the 2 Regular Guys website: 2regularguys.com/2018-reggie-awards-nominations/.
Voting will then open in November right on the 2 Regular Guys website (www.2regularguys.com) and the winners will be crowned in December.
2 Regular Guys podcast co-host, Aaron Montgomery, said the REGGIES are a positive way of recognizing outstanding work in the industry.
“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 community,” Mr Montgomery said.
