Awards Ceremony will take place on Tuesday 21st September 2021

The Ivors is the occasion at which Ivor Novello Awards are presented to celebrate creative excellence in British and Irish songwriting and screen composition.

Recognised as a pinnacle of achievement since they were first presented in 1956, an Ivor Novello Award celebrates exceptional craft in music creation. Each Award represents peer recognition with categories judged by those within the UK music creator community.

The ceremony will honour songwriting across commercial releases and screen composition across film, television and video games released in the UK during 2020. Awards will also be presented to celebrate sustained contributions to UK music.

The Rising Star Award with Apple Music nominees for 2021 will be announced on 27 July.

The nominations for Best Album, Best Contemporary Song, Best Original Film Score, Best Original Video Game Score, Best Song Musically and Lyrically, Best Television Soundtrack and PRS for Music Most Performed Work will be announced on 10 August.
