The winners have been announced in the 28th British Jazz Awards run by Big Bear Music. The winners were chosen in the final round by public vote, with a panel of judges producing a shortlist earlier in the process. Due to a lack of sponsorship, there will not be an awards ceremony this year. Congratulations to all the winners!
