David Knight - 30th Dec 2013

Yes, 2013 is almost done. And so, even though we're all bleary-eyed from days of Yuletide excess, Promo News's brave band of contributors have gathered for arguably their toughest job of the year: picking their favourite videos of the past twelve months.

Considering the variety, the quantity and above all the quality of work this year, this has obviously been a devilishly difficult task. So – in alphabetical rather than ranking order – here are Promo's Top 20 Favourite videos of 2013.

And you can also watch the videos as a playlist on the new Promo News YouTube channel.
