Composers David Arnold and Michael Price last night (February 21) won a Music+Sound Award for Best Original Composition in a Television Programme thanks to their work on the second series of Sherlock, and David Arnold also took home a special award for Outstanding Contribution to Music or Sound. The pair won in the face of competition from John Lunn (Downton Abbey Series 3), Rob Lane (The Last Weekend), Jessica Dannheiser (3 Minute Wonder - Dragonfly) and Kevin Sargent (We'll Take Manhattan). The ceremony took place at the Troxy, an Art Deco styled concert venue located in Tower Hamlets, London.

A relatively new ceremony, the Music+Sound Awards is now in its third year, and are the world's first and only awards programme to recognise and celebrate the indispensable role and outstanding contribution that music and sound design play in the world of visual media. Aimed at professionals working in advertising, film, television (branding and programming) and gaming, the awards are open to anyone who is or has been involved in the creation, composition, sourcing, licensing, briefing and / or production of music and sound design for any visual media broadcast or released in the UK.

You can see the full list of winners and nominees on the Music + Sound Website.
