Macworld UK named the winners of its prestigious Macworld Awards at a glittering ceremony held at the Royal Courts of Justice in London last night.

The Awards were sponsored by Harman Kardon, JBL, Quark and FileMaker. The event saw the UK Mac industry's leading lights gathered together under one roof to share the occasion.

Winners came from an extensive and varied list after a year of fast-paced change in the Mac industry: Apple began the move to Intel processors, developers are beginning to gear up for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and the iPod continues to lead the pack as the world's leading portable media player.

After great reflection, this year's winners and runners-up are as follows:
