On Saturday night past I went along to the IN! Magazine Awards. These awards celebrated Northern Ireland’s most influential events and people. It was a wonderful evening; I’ll have a full post up shortly on my experience but for now I thought you might like to know who won. In the order they were announced;
The Event of the Year: The World Police and Fire Games
Back in August 2013 NI welcomed 7000 competitors from 67 countries to take part in this sporting event.
Breakthrough designer: Rachel McKnight
Rachel creates unique pieces of Jewellery and more from plastic. That’s a picture of her work below.
Sports personality of the year: Rory Best
Rory plays Rugby for both Ulster and Ireland. He tweeted that the award was a ‘huge honour, and capped off an incredible week.’
Cover of the Year: Tiffany Brien aka Peanut Butter Girl
Tiffany was crowned Miss Northern Ireland back in 2012. Her latest adventure sees her blogging about her fitness lifestyle. Her Facebook page is just shy of 50,000 followers.
Most Stylish Couple: Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner
Jamie and his wife picked up this incredible award. Jamie couldn’t be there on the night as he was spending time with his daughter. Jamie is set to star as Christian Grey in the upcoming film version of 50 Shades of Grey.
Man of the Year: Liam Neeson
A little bit of me hoped Liam would be there to pick up his award and part of me hoped he wouldn’t. The fan girl inside me would have been delighted but she would certainly of made a show of me. Luckily for my inner fan girl, he couldn’t be there. If you don’t know who Liam Neeson is, have you been living under a rock? He starred in the Taken films, Batman, The A Team and he comes from Ballymena, Northern Ireland. His current film Non-Stop is out now. Oh and he has voiced the current NI Tourism ad.
Online Personality: NI Gossip Guy
NI Gossip Guy brings us all the latest news in Northern Ireland, from men’s and women’s fashion to local events and the latest gossip (obviously).
Most Stylish Male on the Night: Peter Johnson
I couldn’t find a photo of Peter to show you all but he certainly captured the Great Gatsby theme with the use of a cane and a fabulous suit.
Most Stylish Female on the Night: Katie McAuley
Katie wore this Solace London Dress perfectly. I was very nearly going to get the white version for the event. Katie scooped herself a trip to New York for being so stylish.

So there you have it; the winners of the IN! Magazine Awards. Congratulations to all the winners. I’m sure you will agree that Northern Ireland has some amazing people. As Liam said it’s the people that make a place great. Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below. Here’s to next year….
