Including the coveted Grand Prix, the Evening Standard’s AIDS free appeal snapped up Editorial Campaign of the Year. It challenged the stigma around HIV and won commitments from leaders, including the UK government, to do more to eradicate the AIDS epidemic.

Raising £3.26m in just two months to support the work of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, it became the company's most successful Christmas campaign.

Melissa Chapman, chief content officer of Jungle Creations and member of the judging panel was impressed by the growth they'd seen in such a short amount of time.

She said: "They have essentially been able to own the majority UK LGBTQ+ market share on Snap. Additionally, they've made Snap a profitable venture for them, which many other publishers struggle with. Especially given the size of their business compared to other entries."

Other winners include: BBC World Service English for Outstanding Digital Team of the Year, Channel 4 for Video Team of the Year, Expressen TV for B2C Editorial Team of the Year, Spotify for Commercial Team of the Year, ITV News Central for Breaking News Story of the Year and Vice Media for Best Video Journalism.

Sponsors of these awards are the Press Association and Winmo.
