How Will The Ivors Academy recognise jazz composing through its awards?

In 2023, The Ivors Academy re-launched The Ivors Composer Awards as The Ivors Classical Awards to celebrate creative excellence in composition for contemporary classical and sound art.

The Academy is seeking to establish The Ivors Jazz Awards in 2024 as part of a programme of awards and recognition to celebrate composers and songwriters. A stand alone ceremony celebrating jazz will give greater profile to British and Irish jazz composers and musicians.

Any new jazz compositions that would previously have been entered for consideration into The Ivors Composer Awards 2023 will be eligible for the new Jazz ceremony when it is announced.
