Who is The Ivors Academy for?

We are the leading professional association for music creators in the UK. We are run by our members who create music across all styles, genres and applications – if you write songs, symphonies or syncs you should join us.

WE FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS

As a collective, we are stronger together. Our membership includes giants of modern music as well as new talent. We are passionate about our members rights. We fight to ensure these rights are protected and they are treated fairly.

OUR CURRENT CAMPAIGNS

WE CELEBRATE YOUR TALENT

Our two flagship awards, The Ivors and The Ivors Composer Awards are the most important awards in the industry because they are judged and awarded by respected songwriters and composers. Winning an Ivor is the highest accolade in music for creators.

OUR AWARDS

WE CREATE INSPIRATIONAL MOMENTS

From sell-out creator conferences to our Gold Badge celebratory lunch, intimate audiences with music creators to craft-focused masterclasses and technology seminars, our calendar of member-only events is designed to inspire and engage.

MEET FELLOW CREATORS

A career as a music creator can often mean working independently, without a network of colleagues close by. Our networking events foster a sense of community and allow for collaboration opportunities, advice sharing and support.

We educate and support

Navigating the music industry can be tough. We understand the importance of education and support for our members and with The Ivors Academy Trust, we provide advice and help at all stages of careers
