Technology, theA�internet and social media continues toA�change how music videos are made and howA�they are consumed. They are central to peoplea��s lives again, a huge source ofA�entertainment a�� and sometimes awe and wonder.

A�a�?AndA�the MVAs has become a globally-recognised event for celebrating the outstandingA�creative work in music videos in the UK and around the world. Last yearA�filmmakers travelled fromA�Europe and the United States to attend our biggestA�show ever. It was a very good night indeed a�� and Ia��m sure the fifth MVAs willA�be the best one yet.
