Some of the UK’s most talented production designers, set decorators and other members of the art department teams gathered at Royal Horseguards Hotel London on Saturday 9th February 2019. The event was full of talented individuals who work behind the scenes to bring the Directors vision to life and in turn allow the viewer to travel on a totally immersive journey through wildly imaginative environments and historical themes. 

The Favourite, Bohemian Rhapsody, Mary Poppins Returns and Killing Eve were among the winners with Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts Production Designer Stuart Craig picking up the special award for Lifetime Achievement.
