Sting and his wife Trudie Styler have been honoured for their charity work with the Rainforest Fund.

Sting described the International Green Film Award as a "green Oscar" at a ceremony in New York.

"The reason we do it is not because we get an award, but we're very happy when we do receive something like this."
