Press release:
Benburb Productions was awarded second place in the Best Music Video category against extremely tough competition. With over 1,000 members throughout Europe, the IOV Awards has fast become the leading showcase of talent in Professional videography and attracts sponsorship from the leading manufacturers and suppliers to the industry. Presented by media producer and presenter, Philip Hilton, the Oscar-style ceremony took place alongside the IOV’s ProVideo trade exhibition held in the Jaguar Halls at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

The music video ‘New Sun’s’ produced for local artist Tyrone Relph, was one of only five short-listed titles within the Best Music Video category which is a significant achievement in itself.
