Winner Sophie Webster of Simon Webster Hair said:

We’re over the moon! Thank you so much PRS for Music. We try so hard to work with all the amazing creative industries in Brighton with music at the forefront and we’re so excited to be finally able to have a music system that reflects our passion.

Westbourne Beauty Clinic and THESALONOFCHI were awarded the two runners up prizes of £2,500 each.

Guy Fletcher OBE, PRS Chairman said:

I really liked Simon and Sophies' energy and enthusiasm in their salon. What particularly impressed me was that they are incorporating local artists and talent within their music offering. We love that they care about Brighton's wider music community alongside their business. Congratulations to the team and we very much look forward to working with you.

Work has already begun to assist with the implementation of the winners' prizes and prepare for the exclusive launch event in Brighton. PRS for Music would like to thank all this year’s entrants; it’s been our best year yet.
