Now in their 23rd year, the annual Legal & General Mortgage Club Awards were held once again at The Guildhall in London.

This year there were 16 awards handed out - nine for lenders and seven for brokers. Thirteen of these awards have been voted for by our business partners, with the other three judged by Legal & General Mortgage Club.

The lender awards are based on an annual broker survey which provides a unique benchmark of the intermediary mortgage market. As in recent years, we once again asked lenders to vote for many of the broker awards.

To find out what our winners had to say, and to see exclusive pictures from the event, you can view our post-awards supplement here.
