A celebration of Southern craftsmanship, the Made in the South Awards is our annual hunt for the best Southern-made products in six categories. A panel of Garden & Gun editors and guest judges will choose a winner and several runners-up in each category—as well as an overall winner. Those selected will appear in the pages of our December 2015/January 2016 issue, and the overall winner will claim the $10,000 prize.


who should enter

Any Southern artisan or business with a product that will be available through January 2016.
