BOB Award Winners’ Toolkit


Winning a 2019 Charlotte magazine BOB Award is a pretty big deal.

To help you spread the good news, we created this handy toolkit. It has everything you need to tell Charlotte you’re the BEST of the BEST. Hopefully, we answered your biggest questions below!

Awesome, I won! What do I tell people?

It is awesome to be a BOB Award Winner! Incoming residents, recent transplants, and native Charlotteans all use our annually-updated Best of the Best lists to find Charlotte’s top businesses in a variety of industries.

If people ask, tell them you’re a Charlotte magazine BOB Award Winner. (Remember, “BOB” is pronounced like the name, Bob!)

How do I tell brick-and-mortar visitors?

Window clings are being mailed to winners. You should receive a two-sided static cling for your storefront.

Is there an awards ceremony?

No, there’s something even better. Our BOB Awards Party is all about fun—not long acceptance speeches. We hold this party each year to celebrate the winners, a.k.a. you! Celebrate your success with the city that loves you on Friday, June 7, at The Fillmore Charlotte.

Click here for more party details.

Don’t forget to RSVP using the code on the printed invitation we mailed to you!

Is there a physical BOB Award available?

Yes! You can show off with a stylish BOB Award plaque. This custom-designed keepsake looks great decorating the office and customer-facing spaces. Plus, it ships to you ready-to-hang, and no framing is necessary.

Can I show-off on my website?

Yes; we encourage putting the official BOB Award Winner badge on your website. This shows site visitors you’re not only the real deal, but you’re the BEST in Charlotte!

Add the badge to your site by clicking the below graphic to download it. Then, upload it to your website. You can link it to, where the winners will be listed. Many winners also like to upload the badge to their email signatures (and link it)—it’s a great way to casually tout your achievement!
