Composers and sound designers Ben and Max Ringham have won the theatre category of the h100 Awards 2019.

Now in their 11th year, the awards from h Club in London celebrate creative talent across 10 categories also including architecture and design, fashion, film and television broadcast.

The Ringhams won the theatre and performance category for their work over the past year, which includes Anna at the National Theatre, Bells for Peace with Yoko Ono at Manchester International Festival and Berberian Sound Studio at the Donmar Warehouse in London.

Other nominees in this category included actor Andrew Scott, Theatr Clwyd artistic director Tamara Harvey, Theatre Royal Stratford East artistic director Nadia Fall, playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and designer Rosie Elnile.

The winners were announced at a ceremony at h Club Studio in London on September 10.

Artist and theatre designer Es Devlin won the architecture and design award, while the music award went to executive director of music organisation Jazz Re:freshed Yvette Griffith, who recently set up a new initiative to galvanise philanthropic support for black-led arts organisations.

‘Deficit’ in donations to black-led arts companies is target of new scheme

In addition to the 10 creative categories, there is an under-30s category that recognises ‘ones to watch’ across across all disciplines. The winner of this category was poet, writer and actor Hussain Manawer.

Chief marketing officer at h Club, Michael Berg, said: “We are very proud to now be in our eleventh year of the h100 awards.

“The awards embody h Club’s core purpose: to facilitate those working in the creative industries to connect, collaborate, create and showcase their work.”
