Plans for the event are well underway, and Cheryl Taylor, editor of Footwear Today Magazine commented: “The indications are that the 2015 Footwear Industry Awards will be even bigger and better than last year! This hugely popular annual event offers a great opportunity for the Footwear Industry to celebrate the achievements of some of the wonderful people who work in the footwear trade and of the brands. It promises to be an exciting evening, with many treats in store… my lips are sealed! I’m looking forward to meeting up with old friends and new on the night!”

National Shop Front of the Year Award returns for a second year

Launched as part of the 2014 Footwear Industry Awards,  the National Shop Front of the Year Award, sponsored by Remonte, rewards the creative efforts of independent retailers.  A good shop window can be key in driving footfall, and the skill and effort that goes into designing and organising a really inventive window display often goes unappreciated.

Whether it’s a summer holiday or a winter wonderland, the FIA team is inviting all independent retailers throughout Britain, large or small, to enter and be in with a chance of winning this exciting award and the £1500 holiday vouchers. Retailers can also be nominated by someone else.

Please email photos of your most creative window displays to cheryltayloreditor@googlemail.com or fill in the online form here right up until the 5th January for consideration by the FIA team.

Enty for the other categories closes on the 24th of October, so make sure you take the opportunity to nominate your brand by filling in the online entry form here: www.footwearindustryawards.com/entrynomination-form
