Members of the European parliament, commission representatives and the Brussels community are set to attend tonight's annual MEP awards, organised by the Parliament Magazine.

Tonight's ceremony will be hosted by former commission vice-president and current MEP Viviane Reding, in the beautiful Concert Noble just a stone's throw from the European institutions.

After nearly 500 MEPs submitted their votes, we look forward to unveiling this year's winners. For more information, go to http://www.mepawards.eu or follow us on Twitter @Parlimag for live coverage throughout the night.
