Five amazing moments from the Music Week Sync Awards

Five amazing moments from the Music Week Sync Awards

The third annual Music Week Sync Awards took place in London last night. And as the industry nurses its collective hangover from the post-show festivities, we take a look back at five amazing moments from the ceremony.

With so much to choose from, whittling down just five highlights from last night was a bit of a challenge. You can however, relive more of the evening's most memorable moment over at our Sync Awards 2016 Facebook photo gallery, featuring snaps of all the winners. Please be sure to tag, comment and share as you see fit.

A surprise win for BMG

In a hotly contested category, indie publisher BMG emerged victorious in the Sync Team – Publisher stakes, fighting off stiff competition from the three majors’ publishing arms.

 

Music Sales’ John Boultwood accepts Iain Cooke’s award

Music Sales’ John Boultwood provided one of the biggest laughs of the night when he took to the stage to accept the Music Supervisor – TV Award on behalf of Iain Cooke, taking the opportunity to credit himself liberally in the rightful winner’s absence.

 

Jo Caulfield takes on the room

Acclaimed comedian Jo Caulfield was on hosting duties last night. And before the first award was handed out, she’d singled out several individuals for their ‘unfortunate’ headshots in the show supplement, whilst also identifying the three majors as the ‘axis of evil’. A bold approach to say the least.

 

Jamie N Commons scoops Sync Artist of the Year

UK performer Jamie N Commons brought a little glitz to proceeding when he took to the stage to receive the Sync Artist of the Year Award. Other contenders for the crown included Jess Glynne, Izzy Bizu and Mark Ronson.

 

The after party

Following the three-course meal and the awards presentations, the after party and its free bar were welcomed with open arms, as the post-show festivities ran long into the night.
