Fabrique 1840

With the very first edition of its award, Fabrique 1840 is proud to support the creative economy in Canada by rewarding the work of artisans from here. And you, the public, play a pivotal role!

Through June 20, vote on your favourite creation in each of the three categories and you could win one of three $500 Fabrique 1840 gift cards!

Over the last few weeks, hundreds of artisans from all over Canada have competed creatively to earn themselves a spot among the 30 finalists selected by our jury of experts.

Once this groundbreaking event has ended and the winners are announced on July 1, the first-place winner selected by the jurors will be awarded a $10,000 prize. Additionally, three creators (chosen by you!) will each bring home a People's Choice Award.
