Encouraging partnerships between business organisations and cultural initiatives, the Arts & Business Awards were announced last night at a ceremony in London.

The winners of this year's Arts & Business Awards were announced last night in a ceremony at St Luke's, London. The awards recognise innovative collaborations between the two sectors, honouring successful partnerships in the creative and commercial worlds.

Ian Callum, Design Director at Jaguar Cars, who sponsor the awards, said he was delighted to be able to showcase the collaborations between arts and business. “With uncertainty surrounding arts funding it is essential that businesses continue to forge links with arts organisations to ensure sustainability of the sector," he said. "Businesses must remember that the arts and creativity are often at the forefront of innovation and we in the private sector can be enriched by listening and contributing to what the arts have to offer.”
