Made in Virginia: To nominate a business for Made in Virginia, submit the business name, location, and contact information, and we will add them to our mailing list. Businesses must be owned and operated primarily in Virginia, with specific products available during the publication period (typically November and December).
E-mail: Vayda Parrish, VaydaParrish@CapeFear.com

 

Best of Virginia: We do not accept nominations for Best of Virginia; it’s a write-in poll, so voters can vote for any business they choose. For notifications, follow us on Facebook and/or subscribe to our Editorial Projects newsletter. (Link on website or here; you must click the confirmation email and “manage subscription” to choose Editorial Projects.)
 

Dining, Drink, and Recipes: We welcome queries related to the many wonderful food options available in Virginia. We do not cover businesses located outside the state. For recipes, a chef must be willing to write the recipes and cook them with a photographer and stylist in the kitchen. 
 

Travel: We are only covering destinations in Virginia. 
 

Bonus Material: We accept submissions and press releases for our bonus projects on a rolling basis. Please add us to your press release list (see below). If you want to be on our list for specific project-related emails, please contact Vayda Parrish, VaydaParrish@CapeFear.com.
