The awards opted for an eye-catching orange theme running throughout which was complemented with dazzling crystal chandeliers.

Of course, the trophies for the winners were of the same standard. Appropriately, they took the shape of dynamite sticks whilst being kept sleek with a simple black and orange colour theme on a chrome background.
