Since its inception in 2008, the UKMVAs has grown into the most important annual event in the calendar for the world of music video production.

Louise Stevens, event director of the UK Music Video Awards, says: “We’re proud that, since 2008, the UKMVAs has been a platform to spotlight and honour the artistry and technical prowess behind the most compelling music visuals. We remain committed to celebrating the artform and the creators who strive to advance it despite the challenges for music video production. As we launch this year’s Awards, we look forward to celebrating this year’s best work and adding a fresh set of names to the UKMVA winners archive.”

UKMVA editorial director David Knight adds: “It’s been a tumultuous year for music videos in many ways. The ability of music video makers to adapt to the changing needs of the music industry never ceases to amaze me. And that’s one reason why we have introduced new awards at the UKMVAs this year that honour both the sterling efforts of producers and the range of emerging talent in different areas of filmmaking.

"I think we are going to see how music video production in the UK and around the world has not only risen to numerous challenges, but also helped to push music videos into an exciting new era, as a promotional tool and an artform.”
