Records were broken at the annual Sustainable Ireland magazine awards. There were a record number of entries, a record number of winners and a record number in attendance!
While not every nomination or finalist walked away with an award, we can honestly say that everyone was a winner on a night to remember at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast.
To all who participated, those who attended, those who made up the various independent judging panels and especially to those who sponsored the black tie evening, a big ‘thank you’ from all of us here on the Sustainable Ireland team.
So, who won what? Here’s a list of our winners, and don’t forget to check out our New Year print edition for a comprehensive report in words and pictures.
