By | Published on Friday 21 October 2016


It was the UK Music Video Awards last night, with over 800 video creators, producers, commissioners and other random people who have definitely watched at least one music video at some point in the recent past gathered to celebrate the artists, directors and labels who do the best visual stuff.

Says the event’s Editorial Director David Knight: “Since 2008, the UK Music Video Awards has celebrated music videos as a form of creative expression, as entertainment, and as an effective way to bring music to the world. This year’s winners and nominees reflect the extraordinary extent of talent and craft that’s been applied to the making of music videos in Britain and around the world, and we’re honoured to be a part of celebrating that”.
