Over 550 guests gathered last night at the glorious e-learning awards to celebrate the industry's finest.  Following fine champagne and excellent company (with a side order of smoking lemons), we at last found out who were the winners from a staggering shortlist of 129 amazing projects.

The Towards Maturity table were thrilled that so many of our Ambassadors and benchmark participants walked away with awards. 21 of the 55 overall awards went to those active in our community and 9 of the 22 gold awards.

A full round up of winners (incl. the shortlist) are below. We are so excited that one of our newest Ambassadors, Sponge UK walked off with the coveted E-learning Development Company of the Year and the work of Rob Caul, MD of Kallidus, was acknowledged in his bestowing of the e.learning Age Outstanding Contribution Award.

To our delight, Channel 4 and Acteon won 2 golds and a silver, the marvellous team at Capita Employee Benefits got team of the year, PwC (one of the Top Deck Benchmarkers in our 2014-15 Benchmark study) walked away with 3 awards and LV= won the Best Use of Social and Collaborative Technologies for Learning. LEO won gold for Excellence in the Production of Learning Content – Third Sector with their programme for Child Bereavement UK. We also found out that McDonalds, in conjunction with C&G:Kineo clearly has the best game in town! McDonalds will be hosting our next Retail Sector Benchmark Group on 12th Feburary, so join us if you want to find out more.

Also a big thank you to the team at BizMedia and e-Learning Age for putting on such a show and to the e-Learning Network under the leadership of Tony Fascina, for co-ordinating the judging (a very tricky task).

As part of our Good Practice Partnership with e-Learning Age, we will be bringing you the stories of the winners of the next 12 months, but in the meantime we send all of our congratulations to the winners and those shortlisted.
