Nominations for The Muddy Awards 2018 are now closed!!

Vote for the most unique, quirky and utterly brilliant businesses in Warwickshire in the finals of our prestigious Awards, between May 14 - 18.

The Muddy Awards ended their nomination stage in Warwickshire on Sunday at 7pm after two weeks of frenzied voting.

The Top 5 businesses in each of the 24 lifestyle categories will go through to the Finals between 14-18 May, and the Winners will be announced on Mon 21 May, ready for Winners Drinks at Cafe Vin Cinq’s cocktail bar (opposite Rugby School) on the evening of Tues May 22.

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.

We know how much winning a Muddy Award can really help boost small local businesses that often slip through the cracks of other competitions, so please get behind our lovely indie Awards, and spread the word far and wide!

    May be a silly question but how can we nominate & vote

    • catherine April 3, 2018

      Hi Sammy, thanks for getting in touch, you’ll be able to nominate and vote for a business online via the site once the awards open on April 23. All the info will be available then.

        Brilliant Many Thanks
        Good Luck Everyone!

        I’m also unclear as to where you go on your site to nominate a business.

        • catherine April 23, 2018

          Hi Saal, you can go to here: – or click on the top right hand corner of the website where it says Vote for the local businesses you love! under the Muddy Awards logo

    Hi, I just voted for one but it said ‘nominate’. Is that a vote or a nomination to be able to vote for the business?

    • catherine April 25, 2018

      Hi Joe initially you nominate your favourite business, the top 5 (in vote numbers) make it through to the final, which is a closed public vote – good luck to all Warks businesses taking part!

      • Joe April 26, 2018

        Thanks Catherine. When you say ‘closed public vote’, closed to who? Thanks Joe

  • catherine April 26, 2018

    They’re absolutely open to everyone, but last year you could see the public votes in the final go up and down on the website via cocktail glasses. This year there won’t be the cocktail glasses – votes will go straight to a database in the same way as nominations – so a closed public vote in that sense. Nothing sinister!

    • Joe April 26, 2018

      Haha, thanks Catherine!
