The Ivors Composer Awards 2020

The Ivors Composer Awards sees the presentation of Ivor Novello Awards to recognise creative excellence in classical, jazz, and sound arts.

The Ivors Composer Awards will be presented on Tuesday 1 December 2020 at the British Museum, Great Russell Street, London.

The Ivors Composer Awards sees the presentation of Ivor Novello Awards to recognise creative excellence in classical, jazz, 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.

We hold an annual public call for submissions for works that received a UK premiere performance, either live or broadcast, during the 12 months preceeding 1 April in any given year. To be eligible the composer must have been born in the UK, or have been ordinarily resident during a specified period of time.

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

The call for entries for the 2020 Awards closed at 5pm on Thursday 16 July.

Submissions are made through the Academy’s Entry Website where you can also see the full rules: https://ivorsacademy.secure-platform.com
