And just like that, another Creative Edinburgh Awards is over!

A year of organisation and judges' deliberations culminated in last Friday's event at The Biscuit Factory on 17 November. It was fantastic to see the sold-out venue packed with creatives from all industries, from students to start-ups to freelancers.

We were also delighted with a number of special guests - Minister for Culture, Europe and International Development Christina McElvie MSP, Edinburgh Council Director of Culture and Wellbeing Joan Parr, and Creative Scotland Director of Creative Industries Clive Gillman. Our spectacular drag performer Guy Liner got the party started, while DJ Arusa Qureshi kept it going until the wee hours.

And of course, there were the winners! If you missed out on the ceremony, we have detailed the full list of winners below. A big congratulations goes to them as well as the finalists in what has proven to be one of the best Creative Edinburgh Awards yet.
