The Ivors 2020

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

The Ivors will be presented on Wednesday 2 September 2020 at JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.

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

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 were commercially released during the calendar year ending 31 December. To be eligible works must have a British or Irish writing contribution of at least one third.

The Ivors 2020 will be presented with Apple Music. Apple Music will support the Academy’s mission to cultivate the next generation of Ivor Novello Award winners through the introduction of the Rising Star Award with Apple Music.

PRS for Music continue their long-standing relationship with The Ivors as title sponsors of the PRS for Music Most Performed Work and the PRS for Music Icon Award (Icon being the new name for the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award).

The public call for entries for 2020 is now closed.

2020 Awards Ceremony


The award ceremony will take place at JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on Wednesday 2 September 2020. The day includes a three course lunch in Grosvenor House's Great Room, followed by the presentation of fourteen Ivor Novello Awards.

Academy members and individuals working in, or organisations forming part of, the music industry can apply to purchase tickets. If you are an Academy Member of The Ivors Academy, you can purchase tickets at a specially discounted rate.
