Women In Music Awards 2021 winners announced
26 Oct 2021
The Music Week Women In Music Awards has returned with an in-person event at the London Hilton on Park Lane. It was the first edition of the ceremony for two years because of the pandemic.
Top execs, artists and songwriters gathered to honour outstanding women in the music industry across live, recorded music, management, trade bodies, music publishing and digital platforms.
Staged in partnership with UK Music and AIM, the headline sponsor for this year’s event was YouTube Music. Broadcaster Alice Levine returned for the seventh time to host the awards, a hugely popular event in the industry calendar since its launch in 2014.
