The awards, which are presented to figures who excel in fashion, film, television, arts, science and innovation, were presented at a ceremony in London earlier today.
According to CVG, the BIA honours the "top creative, entrepreneurial and inspirational minds" in the respective fields, with all money raised going to UK charities.
David Yarnton, the chairman of the BIA, as well as Nintendo's UK boss, said that the "UK is the creative capital of the world".
"You don't need a great education and there's great freedom for people to express themselves. Punk music, for example, would probably have been banned in many countries but was allowed to flourish here.
"I hope the British Inspiration Awards will change some people's attitudes about Britain and make them proud," he added.
