The Ivors sees the presentation of Ivor Novello Awards to recognise creative excellence in songwriting and screen composition.

Awards Ceremony will take place on Tuesday 21st September 2021

The Ivors celebrates works by UK and Irish songwriters and screen composers.

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 66th presentation of Ivor Novello Awards at The Ivors with Apple Music will take place on Tuesday 21st September, with plans to hold the annual awards ceremony at Grosvenor House, London.

Music written by British or Irish songwriters and composers that was commercially released in the UK between 1st January 2020 and 31st March 2021 is eligible for this year’s awards.

Entries for Best Album, Best Contemporary Song, Best Original Film Score, Best Original Video Game Score, Best Song Musically and Lyrically, and Best Television Soundtrack are open now and close on 5pm Friday 30th April.

Anyone can make a submission for The Ivors, including the songwriters and composers themselves.

Enter The Ivors 2021. Please ensure you read the Rules and Guidelines prior to entering.

The Rising Star Award with Apple Music also returns for the second year. Created to honour young talent who demonstrate exceptional potential, the award includes a mentoring scheme from Apple Music where all nominees receive a year-long mentorship from a well-established Academy member. Last year’s winner, Mysie was mentored by songwriter and producer Fraser T Smith.
