Jane Longhurst, MIA chief executive, said: "We received a fantastic response to the list this year, with applications from all sectors of the industry and for people working at all levels; each one a worthy entrant and choosing even the initial shortlist was difficult.

"Video interviews were conducted of all 20 shortlisted people and, along with the case made by each nominator, these were used to judge the winners. Ultimately those that made it onto The MIA List 2012 were those that just showed that extra degree of enthusiasm, passion and dedication to their work and the industry. Congratulations to all."
