The Ivors Classical Awards Judges 2023

At the heart of an Ivor Novello Award is peer recognition. As a community of composers and songwriters we value the art and craft of creating music like no-one else. Our community judge our awards, making their decision based on excellence alone. We believe there is nothing more meaningful, more heartfelt, than appreciation from your peers. The Ivors Academy would like to thank all who voluntarily gave of their time to sit on the 2023 award panels.
