This year has seen much turbulance and change in the doll world.
Doll Reader and Colliii Awards sponsor DOLLS Magazine morphed into one, the IDEX convention has been terminated and the financial crisis has continued to hit the industry and threaten the livelihoods of many budding and established names in the doll world.
We hope that the Colliii Awards 2013 can bring some positive news to the doll world and promote the nominated and winning artists across the world.
