Submission Form

This submission form is used to gather submissions for our 2018 Local Wishlist.

Applications are open to all who make a product in Nova Scotia or who operate a local, independently owned retail location that sells locally made products or offers local services (tours, packages, culinary offerings, etc).

You may submit more than one item for consideration for inclusion on the Local Wishlist. You must submit each item separately. Please submit each gift item only once, uploading it to the category page you feel is the best fit.

You MUST upload a photo with your submission, or the submission will not come through on our end.

To Apply:

  1. Select the category that best suits your gift submission from the drop down menu.
  2. Upload a SQUARE image (.jpeg) of your gift item. You must own the rights to your image. The image should be of a single gift item, without text. No ads or logos, please.
  3. Enter the details of your item/offer using the fields below.
  4. Click the blue “submit form” button located under the application boxes.

Images should be 1000px by 1000px wide and in a SQUARE format. Blurry or dark images will not be accepted. Images must be .JPEG or .PNG. We cannot accept PDFs.

Our focus in selecting gift submissions is on providing our readers with an array of beautifully presented local gift selections from across the province that range in price and gift type. We aim for variety and to curate a list that makes finding and purchasing local items easy for our readers.

The Local Wishlist is a curated list selected from all applications received. Preference will be given to items that have not previously appeared on the list. Application does not guarantee inclusion and not all applications will appear on the Local Wishlist. You should ensure that the image/gift item you submit can represent your product for the full six weeks of the campaign as we are not able to replace your image once the campaign is underway.

Applications are reviewed and selections are made using a predetermined checklist. Category pages will be limited to a maximum number of gifts. We reserve the option to select a product and re-assign it to a different category.

We also encourage businesses submitting a gift item to put some focus on taking a beautiful, quality image that meets the submission guidelines, as we have found that this element has a large impact on sales.
