FIA 2017 logo new version 4Once again the trade has engaged with dynamic annual awards programme the Footwear Industry Awards to nominate their top footwear brands and retailers of the past twelve months. The next part is up to you…

The voting form is now LIVE at Datateam Business Media, organiser of the Footwear Industry Awards, invites YOU, the footwear trade, to help decide the winners of the UK’s most prestigious set of footwear awards.

Following feedback from the industry, the organisers have introduced a judging panel for the 2017 awards. The voting stage will produce finalists in each category, and these nominees will then be presented to an independent judging panel formed of representatives from the BFA, SSF, IFRA, Footwear Friends and Footwear Today. This panel exists to ensure that all nominees are entered in appropriate categories, and to take into account quantitative factors as well as the qualitative vote of the industry. For more information about the process, please

The winners will be announced on the Gala Awards Dinner on the 19th February at the National Conference Centre (formerly the National Motorcycle Museum), Birmingham, on the evening of the first day of the Moda Footwear Show. Contact Sue Wiseman at to book your tickets.


Voting closes on 12th November – make sure your voice is heard!
