The Ivors Composer Awards

The Ivors Composer Awards is when Ivor Novello Awards are presented to celebrate creative excellence in classical, jazz and sound arts.

Awards Ceremony will take place in December 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 in December 2021. 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 ceremony will honour contemporary UK composed classical, jazz and sound art that received its first UK public performance between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021. Awards will also be presented to celebrate sustained contributions to UK music.

The Academy is now inviting entries for consideration for the 2021 Awards. Anyone can enter an eligible work, including the composer or sound artist themselves. For full details see the ENTER page above.
