The Best International Pop Video award went to Oh Land’s White Nights, which was directed by Barcelona-based directing team Canada, who, having been nominated for an impressive eleven nominationsalso picked up the prestigious Best Director award.

UK Music Video Awards editorial director David Knight, says, “Some amazing music videos have been made in the past year, and that resurgence of the medium as a creative force is reflected in the range of winners at the UK Music Video Awards.
