The Ivors 2019

The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in UK and Irish songwriting and composing.

The Ivors 2019 were presented on Thursday 23rd May at JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.

The Ivors 2019 celebrated excellence in songwriting and screen composition, across works released in the UK during 2018. The Awards also honoured songwriters and composers with categories recognising their contribution to UK music. The Ivors 2019 were sponsored by PRS for Music.

An Ivor Novello Award represents peer recognition and all award categories are exclusively judged by music creators. The Academy holds a public call for entries and all eligible submissions are reviewed by juries specifically appointed by the Academy.
