The ceremony will be held at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London, on Thursday March 25th 2010, and will once again provide the channel with an evening of entertainment and networking as key players in the UK trade are recognised for their achievements over the past year.

PCR will announce the finalists in the January issue. The winners will then be decided by a voting panel of up to 100 highly regarded industry executives.

“All the elements that have made the PCR Awards such a success over the last two years remain, such as the transparent voting process and incorporation of every aspect of the industry,” said PCR publisher Stuart Dinsey. “For 2010 we have updated some of the categories to ensure we are properly reflecting the trade, and once again look forward to holding the event in the prestigious Royal Garden Hotel.”
