Spotlighting This Year's MADE Awards

By Cece Nunn, posted Sep 18, 2020

The Greater Wilmington Busi­ness Journal is publishing the winners of the fifth annual MADE Awards competition again in this issue because the coronavirus pandem­ic’s spread to the U.S. in March postponed the WilmingtonBiz Conference & Expo, which would have included this year’s MADE Awards winners.

But there is some good news.

Several of this year’s MADE win­ners will participate in the upcoming virtual WilmingtonBiz Conference & Expo. They will be featured during one of the conference’s Roundtables talks that takes place 12:30-1:30 p.m. Oct. 1. For the Roundtables schedule, click here.

Those chosen by the judges this year covered a wide range of prod­ucts being conceived and produced in the local market.

The Greater Wilmington Business Journal launched the MADE Awards to spotlight makers, manufacturers, artisans, designers, small businesses and the business that support them in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties.

Nominations poured in from businesses vying in five categories: Manufacturers, Exporters, Function­al Product (examples include tools, gadgets, beauty products, furniture and industrial/medical devices), Arts (such as apparel, accessories, textiles, home goods and stationery), Food & Beverage and Supporter (examples include patent law firms, manufac­turing associations, SBA lenders and retail markets that carry primarily local products).

Outside of the annual awards, the Business Journal wants to contin­ue to spotlight the MADE focus year-round. Each month in the print edition we’ll feature a company mak­ing goods and products in the Cape Fear region.

To be considered for the feature, email [email protected]­tonbiz.com.

Congratulations to this year’s win­ners.
