Music Week Awards

Hey, it was the Music Week Awards last night. You were probably there. I hope you brought us back some cake.

Lots of companies won awards, particularly Sony in its various forms – with Sony/ATV winning Publisher Of The Year (twice), Sony Music winning the Sales Team award, Sony Commercial Music Group’s campaign for ‘The Trevor Nelson Collection’ named best Catalogue Marketing Campaign, and Sony/Columbia’s US chairman taking the prize that they still insist on calling The Strat.

Another big winner was event sponsor Spotify, which took home the prestigious Best Streaming Platform prize.
