For 65 years The Ivors Academy has celebrated excellence in songwriting and composing. Our awards shine a light on the creative talent of music creators, raising their profile
and celebrating their craft.
Recognised as a pinnacle of achievement since they were first presented in 1956, an Ivor Novello Award represents peer recognition with categories judged by those within the UK music creator community. The Ivors Academy presents Ivor Novello Awards twice a year to honour and celebrate exceptional songwriting and composing.
The Ivors is when Ivor Novello Awards are presented to celebrate creative excellence in British and Irish songwriting and screen composition.
The Ivors Composer Awards is when Ivor Novello Awards are presented to celebrate creative excellence in UK classical and jazz composition and sound arts.
