Final week to enter the Drapers Footwear Awards

Entries for the Drapers Footwear Awards 2008 close this Friday, so make sure you get your entry in.

The awards have been revamped this year, with new categories dedicated to specialists, indies, suppliers and clothing multiples to help them compete on a level playing field.

There are now four Gold awards: Independent Footwear Retailer, Best Specialist Multi-ple, Best Footwear Offer in a Fashion Multiple and Lifetime Achievement Award. Indie-only categories are Best New Store, Comfort Footwear Retailer, Family Footwear Retailer and Kids’ Footwear Retailer.

Indies and specialist multiples can enter Men’s Footwear Retailer of the Year, Women’s Footwear Retailer, Young Fashion Footwear Retailer and Ethical Footwear Retailer, a new award sponsored by Timberland. Specialists and clothing multiples can enter Footwear Etailer and Value Footwear Retailer.

There is an award for Footwear Brand of the Year, and a new Trendsetter category has been added to recognise influential brands, designers and retailers. The student categories remain unchanged.

The Drapers Footwear Awards 2008 is on May 8 at the London Hilton. Entries close on March 7, this Friday. See the pdf for entry details on the right hand column or visit
