More than 1,600 of the industry's finest gathered at Battersea Park to celebrate another year of success in the channel, and also to mark 25 years of the Channel Awards themselves.

With the night given a 90s theme in honour of the Awards' humble beginnings, many were taken back to the days where glowsticks and whistles were the norm at clubs across the land, as Judge Jules played a live set until 2am.

Below is our list of winners and Judges' Highly Commended award winners - congratulations to them all - competition was extremely tough this year and the standard of entry was higher than ever among the shortlist entries.
