The Muddy Awards 2019

The Muddy Awards are coming - tind out more about the most prestigious lifestyle awards in mid and southern England.

Thought spring was feeling a bit quiet? That’s because the Muddy Awards 2018 haven’t started – but they’re on their way!

Between Weds 24 April and Weds 22 May make a date with destiny (or at least your keyboard) to nominate your favourite Surrey businesses in one of our 24 lifestyle categories.

These are the most prestigious digital lifestyle awards in the UK that focus on businesses outside London.

Now in their 4th year in Surrey, the Muddy Awards celebrate the unique and stand-out businesses, offering a helping hand to local high streets by highlighting the outstanding places that our discerning readers most want to know about.

Last year, over 15,000 local businesses entered our awards in 21 counties and we received more than 600,000 votes from avid readers.

The categories this year are:

This year, for the first time, we’ve introduced a ‘Best Newcomer Award’ to spread the word for businesses that have been trading for less than 18 months.

We’re super-proud that the Muddy Stilettos Awards remain resolutely FREE for all businesses to enter – no costly awards dinners to pay for, no finalists fees – because we’re passionate about supporting and promoting the brilliant businesses that add so much to our local lives.

All winners receive free certificates and window rosettes, and an invitation to our winners’ reception drinks which will this year by hosted by the brilliant Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking on Thurs 6 June.

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!

The first round of nominations open on Weds 24 April.

Voting in the finals is from Wed 15 May.

    I put forward for best florist Flowers by Rosie Orr, always brilliant for every occasion. Supplies flowers to my business but also has done flowers for events from parties to weddings, just always delivers whatever the event size. I used to be involved with the British Olympic Association and put forward Rosie Orr to do the flowers for the Annual Gold Ball at the Natural History Museum, she was superb. How she delivered and set up the flowers in the space of time between the museum closing and the event starting with many large arrangements, over 50 tables, working around caterers and the BBC setting up is beyond me! There can only be one winner, she has to be the best florist by far!
