BOB Award Winners’ Toolkit


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 magazine 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/decals and large vinyl banners are available to winners and runners-up. The two-sided static cling is perfect for storefront doors and windows, and the banner is ideal for the sides of buildings facing roadways.
