The South West Tourism awards are a celebration of how important the region's attractions are to this part of the world, with all the international visitors they bring.
2015 was a turbulent year with very unpredictable weather. Especially over the summer which regularly turned from sunshine to heavy downpours.
But it was a good year for indoor attractions like Wookey Hole Caves in Somerset, which saw a rise in visitors as Gerry Cottle the Director of the site explains.
It was a very different story for many of the West's outdoor attractions, where the weather had a clear effect on visitor numbers.
Events like the Shaun the Sheep trail in Bristol and Banksy's Dismaland at Weston-super-Mare, helped the trade by bringing thousands of people to the region. But the wet summer and autumn affected the all year around attractions.
Tonight's ceremony is being hosted by our own Ian Axton and Kylie Pentelow.
