"We're delighted to announce that the PCR Awards will return for their fifth outing in 2012," said PCR publisher and Intent Media MD Stuart Dinsey. "We're looking forward to be returning to our most popular venue, the plush Royal Garden Hotel, but we're also mindful that the past couple of years have been tough for some. So we're reducing the price of attending the biggest night of the year for the PC and IT business.

"The comedian, Tom Wrigglesworth, recently hosted the awards of PCR's sister magazine Develop and went down incredibly well. So we had no hesitation in hiring him for the PCR Awards.

"Meanwhile, our new line-up of award categories will further liven up what we expect to be our best ever PCR Awards."
