Awards Celebrate Southern Craftsmanship in Home, Crafts, Food, Outdoors, Style, and Drink


The official call for entries for Garden & Gun’s 15th Annual Made in the South Awards is now open for entries!

G&G’s Made in the South Awards is meant to celebrate and encourage Southern craftsmanship and to spotlight under-the-radar Southern-made goods in the following categories: Food, Drink, Style, Home, Outdoors, Crafts, and a special Sustainability award.
The deadline to enter is June 17th and the winners will be featured in the Dec/Jan issue of Garden & Gun magazine, with the overall winner receiving a $15,000 cash prize.
Winning this award has proven life-changing for small Southern businesses, thanks to G&G’s highly engaged and enthusiastic readership.
As a result of this exposure, many businesses that won have had to hire production teams to fulfill the volume of orders and even sold out of inventory completely days after the winners were announced.

In addition, the Sustainability Award celebrates a Southern maker who has committed to conservation and the environment by incorporating eco-friendly practices into the business model or by partnering with like-minded nonprofits to give back. To be considered, demonstrate that commitment on your entry form. One winner will be chosen from across all six categories.
