Make stuff in the South? Garden & Gun wants you

If you make a food, fashion, outdoor or home product in the South, Garden & Gun, the Charleston-based magazine of Southern-related cool, has opened the entry season for its annual Made in the South Awards.

The awards are for craftspeople or businesses with a Southern-made product. In addition to the four original categories -- Food, Style and Design, Outdoors and Home -- they've added a new category, Drink. (Hmm, what category would a book written in the South about bourbon fit into?)

Winners get $500 and appear in the December 2013/January 2014 issue.  Judges include Birmingham chef Frank Stitt, Atlanta designers Sid and Ann Mashburn, Brooks Reitz of the Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. and interior designer Barrie Benson.

The deadline for entry is Aug. 1. Go here to get an entry form and the full rules.
