The Fido Awards Ceremony!

A one-of-a-kind Creature Clothes hand painted dog collar for each Award Category

The Fido Awards were held at The Cinema Museum this weekend and we were delighted to be involved.  So involved that Stolli and I ended up on the stage giving out the prizes!!  VERY EXCITING!

And a giant glittery bone for one very special dog...

I arrived at the very beautiful Cinema Museum in Kennington on Sunday morning with a red suitcase full of the hand painted dog collars that I had made as the principal awards for the event, and one giant Best In World diamante bone.  Stolli my dog came with me as our "Security Detail For The Awards" proudly wearing her K9 by Igloo security T-shirt (Stolli and K9's Mr Binks go way back...).

I'm ready to head up security!

The audience gathered... the dogs sniffed each others bums... the suspense was building....

First off Rom Com Rover was awarded to Australian film Red Dog.

Next up came Historical Hound - presented by The Time's chief film critic Kate Muir and won by the wonderful Uggie for his role in The Artist.  It was collected by Uggie's biographer Wendy Holden, who was also on hand to sign copies of Uggie's book - Uggie The Artist - My Story

Blockbuster Bowser was presented by actor & animal ambassador Peter Egan (who Stolli took time off from Security Watch to have a hug with and fell asleep on...).
The prize collar went to Bonnie in the fantastic film Seven Psycopaths.

Peter Egan and Stolli - she fell very much in love with Peter!
Comedy Canine was scooped by Smurf who played Banjo in Sightseers.  Smurf himself was in attendance to collect his prize collar with the films director Ben Wheatley.  He then stunned everyone with his amazing handstands on stage.  This is Smurfs second win for his role as Banjo - he already scooped the Palm Dog Award earlier in the year.  Congratulations Smurf!

Mutt Moment was presented by Richard from Right Said Fred and went to Frankenweenie.  Hooray!
