But before we draw the awards to a close…
Due to the high number of submissions we wanted to add just one more award to honour the diversity of the entries as the winner tonight simply could not be placed in to one of our categories. We had several submissions from this particular organisation which is one of the many reasons why tonight they have been awarded the Haelo Award.

And the winner is… the amazing and incredibly talented, Shadowlight Artists!

Thank you for all our wonderful submissions, despite making the judging incredibly difficult, it’s been a pleasure to watch all your amazing work.
