It was a night of celebration as the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA) were presented to the cream of the county's businesses.
Some 700 people attended the gala awards ceremony at the Kent Event Centre at the Kent Showground in Detling.
Here are some of the pictures from last night's awards.
In addition to the 16 awards there was also a special award for outstanding contribution to Kent business.
That award went to Paul Barrett of Canterbury-based Barretts Motor Group.
Other big winners on the night were Folkestone marketing agency Sleeping Giant Media which scooped a hat-trick of awards and designer children's brand Childrensalon from Tunbridge Wells, which collected two awards.
Organised by the KM Media Group and Kent County Council, the awards event is now in its 11th year.
It was presented by kmfm breakfast show star Laura Crockett and drive time presenter Rob Wills - who also hosted the kmfm disco after the event for revellers.
Those attending enjoyed a three-course meal and were dazzled by magicians.
