We are excited to announce the official call for entries for the Made in the South Awards—our annual hunt for the best Southern-made products. And this year we’re thrilled to offer a $10,000 grand prize to the overall winner.

The rules are simple: 
The awards are open to any Southern business with a Southern-made product that will be available through January 2015 in one of five categories—Food, Style & Design, Drink, Outdoors, and Home. A panel of editors and guest judges, including James Beard Award–winning chef Chris Hastings (Food), Alabama clothing designer Natalie Chanin (Style & Design), Brooks Reitz, Charleston restaurateur and owner of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. (Drink), outdoorsman and G&G contributor T. Edward Nickens (Outdoors), and interior designer Celerie Kemble (Home), will choose a winner and several honorable mentions in each category. Those selected will appear in the pages of our December 2014/January 2015 issue.
