This year will also see the introduction of an all-new award in the TV category: the Overall TV Series Soundtrack (International) award will honour the finest TV sync work done outside of the UK.

Last year’s winners included Universal Music Publishing, who came out on top of the Publisher category in recognition of syncs including the John Lewis Buster The Boxer Christmas campaign featuring One Day I’ll Fly Away. Barns Courtney was named Sync Artist Of The Year, Bucks Music won the Independent Publisher category and BT Sport picked up the award for Broadcaster Music Department.
