Fliprunway Awards 2019

The Fliprunway awards have been set up to recognize and reward exceptional talent here in the UK and Ireland in the professional decorative painting and refinishing market.

It’s a welcome addition to our little industry as there is no formal or otherwise, recognition of the outstanding work that’s achieved by the very talented artisan we have here.

There are many categories and many of the talented ladies I know have been nominated and got through to the finals! The winners will be announced at the award ceremony on Friday 20th September at Fliprunway HQ…. How Exciting!

Having the hard job of judging is, I don’t envy them at all.

I’m through to the Finals!

I was blown away when I found out my lovely community had nominated me for lots of the categories and made it to the finals for 12 of them!! 12 … I thanked all my page follows on Facebook and wanted to take the opportunity to thank you too!

I’m chuffed about them all but especially the Best Interior Blog and Best use of Social Media. I work really hard on both of those so it’s fab-tastic to be recognized for it. Gotta say a big THANK YOU for all you who nominated me. 🏆 I already feel like a winner ….. so Thank You X
