Presented by Mississippi Power and sponsored by Signature Magazine and FestivalSouth, the 2015 Best of the Pine Belt Awards Show spotlights the people, places, and businesses that just make this area unique.
Each year, FestivalSouth and Signature Magazine come together to offer the citizens of the Pine Belt the opportunity to collectively amass their favorite things about living here, and nominate them for a "Best of The Pine Belt Award." Now in it's sixth season, the "Best of" awards have become bragging rights for those who win, and a mark of excellence for a wide array of businesses, personalities, cuisine, and charitable organizations.
We're proud to place the magnifying glass on so many worthy businesses, but even more proud to call the Pine Belt our home and the people who make her great, our friends. Join us in celebrating the best things about the Pine Belt, cast your votes now to make your mark.
For the first time, FestivalSouth and Signature will host a "Best of the Pine Belt Awards Show" Presented by Mississippi Power, and special focus will be placed on a handful of the Pine Belt's best.
