Welcome to the Muddy Awards 2022!

We’re thrilled to be back! Now in our NINTH YEAR, the Muddy Stilettos Awards are the most coveted awards for small independent lifestyle businesses across the country.

We do more than any other lifestyle publication to support, promote and celebrate the best local indies and high streets across our 28 Muddy counties by championing quality, originality and creativity in our Awards- with the winners chosen by you, our discerning readers.

This year’s Awards are set to be our biggest and best yet, and we’re raring to showcase the most awesome lifestyle businesses across Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire, in partnership with Healthily.

For 2022 we have 27 categories for entry including two brand new categories – Best Sustainable Lifestyle Business and Best Hotel/Inn (30+ rooms). Plus – by popular demand – we’re bringing back Best New Lifestyle Start-Up for any plucky business that launched in the past 12 months.

We’re also super-excited to announce the launch of the FIRST EVER ‘winner of winners’ National Muddy Awards. So not only do the businesses you put forward have the chance of winning a coveted Regional crown, but they’re in with the chance of being selected as the ‘best of the best’ – the overall Muddy National Winner.

Nominations open on 3 MAY, and we’re proud to say that the Muddy Awards remain completely FREE from start to finish. So if you’re as #InLoveWithLocal as we are, please get behind the Muddy Awards and give your favourite local businesses the pat on the back they deserve.

Good luck everyone!
