Enter the Rising Star

The Ivors 2020 sees the introduction of a new Ivor Novello Award – the Rising Star Award with Apple Music. Entries are open now and will close on Monday 16 December 2019.

The Rising Star Award with Apple Music will honour young British or Irish songwriting and composing talent who demonstrate exceptional potential and ambition. In addition to receiving an Ivor Novello Award at the awards ceremony, the winner will also receive ongoing support and mentorship from the Apple Music team.

The Rising Star Award with Apple Music is free to enter. Entrants must be Under 25 members of The Ivors Academy. Find out more about Under 25 membership here.

This award has a different format for submissions than our other categories. Rather than one individual work, we ask for three submissions to represent a music creators’ work to date. For all the eligibility criteria, full rules and guidelines, and to submit your entry, please visit our dedicated award entry site.
