BOB Award Winners’ Toolkit

Congratulations!

Being a Charlotte mag BOB Winner is a pretty big deal.

To help you spread the good news, we created this handy toolkit for all winners and runners-up. It has everything you need to tell Charlotte you were named the BEST of the BEST in the city.

Hopefully, we’ve answered your biggest questions below!


Awesome, I won! What do I tell people?

It is awesome to be a Charlotte mag BOB 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 Winner. (Remember, “BOB” is pronounced like the name, Bob!)

If you are a Voters’ Choice BOB Winner, that means your community thinks you’re the best in town at what you do. If you’re an Editor’s Pick, that means you caught the eye of a Charlotte magazine editor.

How do I tell brick-and-mortar visitors and inform foot traffic?

Window clings will be mailed to winners and runners-up when stores open back up in Mecklenburg County. At that time, you’ll receive a two-sided static cling for your storefront.

Can’t wait that long? Click here to purchase additional window clings.


Is there an awards ceremony?

No, there’s something even better.

The Best of the Best Annual Party, The BOBs, is all about fun—not long acceptance speeches.

We hold this party each year to celebrate the winners, a.k.a. you! As a winner/runner-up, you receive early access to this year’s event.

Charlotte magazine’s annual spring Best of the Best Party for this year has been rescheduled to Oct. 1, 2020.

Celebrate your success in a beautiful garden oasis set in the iconic Mint Museum Uptown. Floral and botanical-inspired attire is encouraged.

Click here for party details and to buy tickets.


Is there a physical BOB Award available?

Yes! You can show off with a BOBs Winner plaque, which features the cover of the May issue from the year you won!

Doubling as a keepsake and a marketing tool, this custom-designed piece 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 BOBs Winner badge on your website. This shows site visitors you’re not only the real deal, but you’re the BEST in Charlotte!

  1. Add the badge to your site by clicking the below graphic to download it.
  2. Then, upload it to your website.
  3. You can link it to CharlotteBOBAwards.com, 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!
