Awards Ceremony will take place on 8 December 2021 Nominations announced on 11 November 2021

The Ivors Composer Awards is the occasion at which Ivor Novello Awards are presented to celebrate creative excellence in UK classical and jazz composition and sound arts.

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 3rd presentation of Ivor Novello Awards at The Ivors Composer Awards will take place on Wednesday 8 December 2021 at the British Museum in London.

The ceremony will honour contemporary composed classical, jazz and sound art that received its first UK public performance between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021. Nominations across six award categories will be announced on Wednesday 10 November.

On 8 December four additional awards will also be presented to celebrate sustained contributions to UK music.

The Ivors Composer Awards are sponsored by PRS for Music. The awards presentation is in association with BBC Radio 3 providing exclusive broadcast coverage.
