After careful assessment of the entries, the shortlists were drawn up by a panel of experienced judges, comprising a mix of independent specialists and representatives from companies sponsoring each award.

The winners will be presented with their awards at a gala dinner hosted by broadcaster Penny Smith, to be held at the National Conference Centre in Hampton-in Arden, West Midlands, on Wednesday 22 May.
