Gala evening brings out the stars

The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) Oxford Brookes University and The Publishers Association have announced the winners of the British Book Design and Production Awards 2010. The awards were celebrated at a glittering gala awards evening, held at The Lancaster London Hotel on 5th October, with the great and the good of the publishing industry, including a celebrity or two, in attendance.

Andy HamiltonCelebrity host for the evening was Andy Hamilton, multitalented star of comedy, television and radio, including shows such as QI and Have I Got News For You, and is also a regular contributor to Radio 4's News Quiz and an occasional panellist on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

Also in attendance was celebrity model and sixties icon Twiggy, whose book Twiggy - A Life in Photographs, won the Trade Illustrated Award.

The award for the highly acclaimed Book of the Year this year went to Britain by Bike, a truly outstanding book, published by Anova Books.

In total this year there were 16 awards categories, which each saw a high calibre of quality entrants. The categories included Limited Edition and Fine Binding, Literature and Children's Trade, and also a new category this year called Lifestyle Illustrated.

The awards, which saw a record 430 entries this year, represent the rich diversity and high quality of British book design and production capabilities in the publishing sector. A five-strong panel consisting of industry experts from the design, publishing and production industries met over two days at Oxford Brookes University to select the shortlisted entries and winners.

BPIF Chief Executive Michael Johnson stated: "The quality of the awards this year was of extremely quality and we were delighted with the fantastic amount of entries and the brilliant high production standards. The high quality work by the entrants meant that the judges had a tougher choice than ever in deciding on the final list. The awards ceremony was a highly memorable night and it was wonderful to see the creativity of the entrants being rewarded. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners on their success."
