The official call for entries for Garden & Gun’s twelfth annual Made in the South Awards is open through July 1st. The magazine is seeking Southern-made product entries in six categories: Food, Drink, Home, Style, Outdoors, and Crafts. The overall winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize and will be prominently featured alongside the other category winners and runners-up in the magazine’s December 2021/January 2022 issue.
Garden & Gun created the Made in the South Awards in 2010 to celebrate and encourage Southern craftsmanship, and to recognize the best available Southern-made products.
“The Made in the South Awards are always rewarding for the entire team, but this year, with the end of the pandemic in sight, we’ve never been more excited to celebrate and support small business owners and entrepreneurs across the region,” said David DiBenedetto, senior vice president and editor in chief of Garden & Gun. “We can’t wait to discover a new crop of talented artisans, craftsmen, chefs, designers, and tastemakers.”
All Southern artisans or businesses with a product in one of the six categories that will be available for sale through January 2022 may apply. For entry forms, category descriptions, and rules, visit madeinthesouthawards.com. The entry fee is being offered at a discount rate of $50 until May 31st, but entries will be accepted until midnight ET on July 1st, 2021. Winners will be publicly announced in the December 2021/January 2022 issue of Garden & Gun, which will hit newsstands in November 2021.
