Join us and together we can campaign for the rights of music creators
The Ivors Academy of Music Creators is the home of songwriters and composers of all genres. For over 70 years we’ve represented music creators in the UK, and have bestowed the biggest honours in the industry to giants of modern composition and songwriting.
We campaign nationally and internationally to ensure that the rights of our members are protected, especially as our industry continues to rapidly change.
Our current campaigns
Our membership is exclusively for music creators. If you create music, in any genre, find out more about our two membership types.
