Whether it’s the perfect accessory or a one-of-a-kind gift, there’s nothing quite like discovering a unique find, and the global online marketplace Etsy is often considered the go-to destination for them, selling everything from handcrafted pieces to vintage treasures created by millions of independent artists and small businesses.

To pay homage to its vast community of creative entrepreneurs, Etsy hosts its annual design awards competition, the 2021 Etsy Design Awards (also known as The Etsies). On Tuesday, Etsy revealed the 100 finalists of the 2021 program, selected from thousands of entries received from around the world. These finalists are in the running for the $20,000 USD Grand Prize and more, to be chosen by judges Meena Harris, activist and entrepreneur, Joseph Altuzarra, world-renowned fashion designer, Leanne Ford, interior designer and HGTV host, and Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. 

Making this year’s competition even more exciting, Etsy joined forces with Klarna to present the Klarna People’s Pick Award, offering shoppers the opportunity to vote for their favorite finalist, who’ll receive a $5,000 cash prize. Klarna also encourages shoppers to support small businesses on Etsy, offering those who use Klarna $10 in Etsy credit when they purchase an item from a finalist’s shop during the voting period.
