Submissions are open for Gifted 2019/2020!

By Edmonton Made April 1, 2019

The wait is over! It’s that time of year again – time for Edmonton Made’s third annual gift catalogue, Gifted 2019/2020!

Since its launch in 2017, the Gifted catalogue has showcased more than 200 of Edmonton’s very own, hand-picked products, from backpacks to dog treats, and everything in between.

In the past two years, the annual catalogue has helped local businesses increase web traffic, online sales, wholesale orders to local retailers, and gain media attention.

With nearly 12,000 printed copies distributed to Edmontonians, visitors, local and international media, conference organizers, and economic trade offices around the world along with 38,000 unique views online, Gifted makes it easy to shop local.

Now it’s your chance to be part of Gifted!

This year, we are looking for products that are ready for sale in the following categories:

  1. Apparel and Accessories
  2. Artwork
  3. Bath and Body
  4. Notebooks and Stationery
  5. Food and Beverages
  6. Furniture and Home
  7. Jewelry
  8. Pet
  9. Toys and Hobbies

Businesses have the opportunity to submit up to three (3) products, but only a maximum of two (2) could be selected from the same business. If you have a product that has appeared in Gifted previously, you must submit a different product(s) for consideration.

Each product submitted must:

  • be a tangible product (not a service),
  • be available for purchase online from an e-commerce platform, and
  • cost $500 or less.

Read the full eligibility criteria here.

Following the submission period, a panel of local industry, business, and design experts, will help narrow down the submissions to about 100 products.

In Gifted’s third year, we are bringing back our popular social media cover contest, which launches on Friday, May 17. Each panelist will select their favourite product, then we will turn it over to the public to decide which item will grace the cover of Gifted 2019/2020.

Last year’s catalogue was a major success, and we are thrilled to continue helping small businesses flourish in Edmonton and showcase them around the world.

Please note, product submissions for Gifted 2019/2020 are now closed.
