A total of sixteen awards were presented during the evening and Dan Boys, Creative Director at Audio Trails went on stage to collect the Creative Innovation award, sponsored by Creative Derbyshire. “We are absolutely delighted to be the first winners of this particular award.

Mr Mitchinson added: “It’s fantastic to have everyone from our proud business community come together to celebrate their achievements in 2012. All the many entries were worthy of praise and our judging panel deliberated long and hard to find this year’s winners and we wish them and everyone else the best of luck for 2013.”
