SVI Awards 2012 – The Results!

Published: Wednesday, April 04, 2012

You join us now on the metaphorical red carpet outside the famous D&G Theatre as we prepare to sit through an agonisingly unrelenting four hours of joyous applause, resentful applause, surprised smiles, forced smiles and the simultaneous scents of both victory and crushing defeat in semi-darkness – yes, welcome one and all to the in-paper and online SVI Awards 2012 Ceremony!

The industry voted and we counted; then we counted again suspecting some Bush administration-esque shenanigans until we were satisfied all was present and correct. There were some surprises, some non-surprises, and one bloke who just entered ‘kef’ in every single category like he’s afflicted by some kind of twitchy tech Tourette’s.

So who took the honours this year? Let the envelope opening commence…
