Muddy Stilettos is the UK’s leading lifestyle website for women outside London, with over 200,000 subscribers and a social following of more than 85,000 across 19 counties.

We’re the ‘urban guide to the countryside’ for intelligent, fun-loving women who want to have the inside line on the cool, quirky and unmissable where they live – from pop up supper clubs and new boutique hotels to hidden pubs, new openings and kids events.

We love to champion the very best local independent businesses and this is the ethos behind the Muddy Stilettos Awards, as we search out and celebrate the most unique and inspiring local lifestyle companies across 24 categories.

And unlike many other Awards, the Muddy Stilettos Awards are totally FREE to enter, from start to finish. We hope you enjoy them – good luck, everyone!
