Solillas also received the Micro-Pak Ltd. award, delivered by Steve Bracewell of Micro-Pak Ltd.

Malcolm Collins from Footwear Friends commented: "Again this year we have seen an increase in applicants, and were impressed by the quality of the work that is being done. It is always difficult to choose between so much talent but we feel that the winners were those who not only had exciting product but business acumen as well, and as such will develop into major players in the footwear industry. I am also delighted that so many people attended the event and by doing so supported the trade's unique charity."

Income from the event goes to the charitable works of Footwear Friends.
