Muddy Awards 2018 nominations are now closed!!!

Nominate the most unique, quirky and utterly brilliant businesses in Berkshire in our prestigious awards until Sun 6 May.

Thought April was feeling a bit quiet? Not any more! The Muddy Awards 2018 have just kicked off in Berkshire and will be launching across a further 17 counties throughout the day

Between 23 April and 6 May 2018, make a date with destiny (or at least your computer) to nominate your favourite Berkshire businesses in one of our 24 lifestyle categories. The categories this year are:

Best… Art Gallery; Bar; Beauty Salon: Bookshop; Boutique Stays; Cafe; Children’s Business; Day Spa; Farmhop/Deli; Destination Pub; Family Attraction; Fitness Instructor; Local Food/Drink Producer; Florist; Gift Shop; Hair Salon; Interiors Store; Jewellery Store; Photographer; Restaurant; Theatre/Arts Venue; Wine Merchant; Women’s Store; Yoga/Pilates Studio.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards remain resolutely FREE to enter for all – no costly awards dinners to pay for, no finalists fees and free certificates and window rosettes – because we’re passionate about supporting and promoting the plucky, unique and brilliant companies that add so much to our local lives.

The Top 5 businesses in each category will go through to the Finals between 14-18 May, and the Winners will be announced on Monday 21 May, ready for winners drinkies at Windsor Guildhall on Thurs 24 May. Well, it would be rue not to keep the bubbles flowing after Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

We know how much a prestigious Muddy Award can help boost small local businesses that often slip through the cracks of other awards competitions, so please do get behind them and spread the word!

    Looking forward to the awards process again this year, not sure I can handle the stress and tension though! 😂 can I keep my crown I wonder? Lots of tough competition out there.
    Thank you for running the competition.

    Have just won Best New Business at the Business Girls Awards. No category I can qualify for in the MS awards as a local dog grooming business? Maybe hair salon!
