It’s been an award-winning start to the year for Little Change Creators! Our Brisbane-based business has scored wins, nominations and accolades in several Australian and international awards, including UK’s Junior Design Awards, Australia Post’s Local Business Heroes and My Child’s Excellence Awards among others.
These Awards consider specific criteria - ethical practices, social responsibility, product design, business success and customer service – and are judged on their merit. We’ve summarised our achievements below.
The Junior Design Awards (JDAs) are considered the UK’s most prestigious accolade in the children’s lifestyle space. Hosted by UK parenting and lifestyle magazine, Junior, these awards attract a global audience of modern parents looking to discover quality children’s products and world-class toys.
This year, the #JDA22 judges have shortlisted 350+ products and brands across 76 categories including fashion, toys, travel, books, furniture, interiors, and tableware.
Little Change Creators Re-FUN-able Colouring Sets have been recognised in THREE categories;
Final judging will take place in July by a panel of esteemed experts from within the design, lifestyle and parenting industries. Winners will be announced in September 2022.
Each year, Australia Post scours the country in search of outstanding small businesses. This year it selected 57 businesses from close to 1000 nominations across Australia for its Local Business Heroes campaign. Little Change Creators was one of them.
Local Business Heroes rewards selected small businesses with promotion throughout its post offices as well as marketing materials, coaching and equipment.
The full list of this year’s Local Business Heroes is available on the Australia Post website.
My Child is a leading Australian parenting magazine responsible for the annual My Child Magazine Excellence Awards. The My Child Magazine Excellence Awards recognise the best in baby, kids and parenting products. They’re designed to give Australian parents and caregivers a platform to voice their support for the products and brands they use and love.
Nominations for the 2022 Awards are published in the magazine’s May edition. Little Change Creators Re-FUN-able Colouring Sets received THREE category nominations;
The full list of nominated brands and products can be found in My Child’s May 2022 edition.
Every year, Australia Post gives small business owners a chance to be recognised for their customer service and business excellence. Little Change Creators was nominated in the 2022 People’s Choice ORIAs. Public voting for these awards closed on 31st May and winners will be announced in the second half of 2022.
The AusMumpreneur Awards celebrate and acknowledge the outstanding achievements of Australian mums in small business. These nationally-recognised awards have been running for the past 10 years and acknowledge success in business, product development and customer service.
Little Change Creators’ founder, Paige, scored nominations across EIGHT categories in this year’s AusMumpreneur’s Awards. In 2022, Paige was tasked with juggling business around home-schooling her two young children. This mammoth undertaking seemed to resonate with her customers and the judges but, regardless of whether she wins the Awards, she’s thankful to have her efforts recognised on a national platform.
Finalists for all judged categories will be announced in late July and winners declared in the latter part of 2022.
The Queensland Day Awards were established to shine a light on ‘good’ people doing extraordinary things.
Little Change Creators’ founder, Paige, was deemed a worthy recipient of this Award through her dedication to family, business and community donations of her products.
Award recipients are acknowledged at a ceremony marking the State’s birthday on 5 June.
Running a small business requires a lot of hard work and sacrifice – late nights, missed opportunities and a constant juggle between competing priorities. That’s why we’re very grateful to be recognised for our good design, ethical business practices and all those sleepless nights! Thank you for giving us a go and supporting our family business.
