For 67 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, The Ivors Academy presents Ivor Novello Awards for exceptional songwriting and composing. Each Ivor is unique as it represents peer recognition with categories judged by award-winning songwriters and composers from across the Academy’s membership. Ivor Novello Awards are presented twice a year to honour and celebrate exceptional songwriting and composing.
