SFX Awards 2012: The Winners

The greatest sci-fi awards ceremony in the galaxy has taken place, and now we can reveal the winners to the world

The SFX Awards 2012 winners have been announced at a star-packed ceremony at the SFX Weekender 3. And now we can reveal the winners to you.

There’ll be footage of the ceremony up on this site soon, so expect a few more acceptance speeches, but we’ve included here the video acceptances from “those who couldn’t be here tonight…”

There are a few more, erm “esoteric” awards that weren’t handed out on the night. You can discover who or what they went to in the new issue of SFX, out next Wednesday.
