The industry’s ‘big night’ of the year – The Henries awards – took place last Thursday (October 5), but the positive ripples are still palpable as the award winners celebrate their victories, suppliers follow up on the contacts made and so many attendees rejoice in the ‘esprit de corps’ through numerous posts on social media.
This year’s Henries Awards event (that were hosted by top comedian John Robins) had a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’, not just because of the Parisian theme of the night, but as everyone was up for a night of celebration, and of togetherness.
As Jakki Brown, editor of PG said in the opening speech: “There is no denying that it has been a challenging year in the industry, both on the publishing and retailing fronts, but The Henries rises above these challenges and celebrates our collective achievements.”
The photos from the night are now available to view within the galleries section of PGBuzz.net.

The winners of The Henries award’s categories were not the only winners as a result of last Thursday. The charity raffle (which included some very ‘grands prix’) raised over £7,500 for The Light Fund industrywide charity.
And, PG Buzz can reveal the winner of The Henries Twitter competition. The Jelly Armchair team will be receiving a lovely bottle of France’s fine Champagne as a result of posting a fun photo with some chums from Five Dollar Shake and Stop the Clock Design.
