Turner Prize 2011 won by Scottish sculptor Martin Boyce
Boyce's sculptural installations include park benches, bins and scattered leaves, fashioned from industrial materials. He was the bookmakers' favourite to win the £25,000 prize and the best-known artist on the shortlist, having represented Scotland at the 2009 Venice Biennale.
He is also the third Scottish winner in as many years - Susan Philipsz, a fellow Glasgwegian, won in 2010; Richard Wright, who works out of a studio in the same building as Boyce, was the winner in 2009.
The ceremony was held at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, where photographer Mario Testino presented the award.
