Tears and cheers at the BMJ Industry Awards 2022

The winners and runners-up in the 2022 BMJ Industry Awards were announced at the Awards Lunch in London on Friday September 9th.

Being held less than 24 hours after the announcement of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth ll, the event was tinged with sadness as well as celebration.

A minute’s silence was held to remember Her Majesty, and BMJ Group Managing Editor Fiona Russell-Horne lead a toast to her memory and one to the new King. She also thanked Her Majesty for her years of service, her sense of duty and her commitment to her people.
