Welcome to the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017!

Muddy Stilettos is the UK’s leading regional lifestyle blog, with over 100,000 readers and a social following of 50,000 across 18 English counties. The blog is the ‘urban guide to the countryside’ for intelligent, fun-loving women who live outside the metropolis, but who want to be in the know for the cool, quirky and unmissable things to do where they live – from destination pubs to romantic getaways, cool kids theatre to pop-up supper clubs.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards are a natural extension of the blog, dedicated to searching out the most unique and inspiring local lifestyle businesses across 27 categories. And unlike many other Awards, they are totally FREE to enter, from start to finish.

HOW THE AWARDS WORK

Nomination Stage/

From Weds May 3 to Weds May 24 you can nominate any business based in Warwickshire and West Midlands south, in any of the 27 categories – please support those plucky local businesses who deserve a pat on the back! If you think you’re the best in the county, you can nominate yourself. Voting is strictly once per category per email address. In voting you agree to receive the Muddy Stilettos newsletter, but can unsubscribe in a single click at any time.

The 5 businesses per category with the most nominations will go through to a live Final.

The Finalists/ 

The 5 Finalists per category will be announced on the Awards site on Weds 7 June. The Finals are held live on the Awards site in real time, so as you vote the percentages will move and you will be able to see who is winning. (Please note: many thousands vote in these Awards and the longer the competition goes on, the longer it takes for percentages to move!)

The Finals last one week only, and close at 12pm on Weds 14 June.
