This month we take the bold step of launching The Ivors Academy of Music Creators - a new identity for BASCA. This is a confident and modern brand on which to build a strong, progressive organisation for the future.
Several longstanding members of the Academy, as well as previous The Ivors and The Ivors Composer Awards winners and recipients, have received honours.
We are delighted to announce that entries are now open for The Ivors Composer Awards 2019. Anyone, including the composer, can enter eligible works, and entries across all twelve award categories are judged anonymously.
We are delighted that from 24th June 2019, The Ivors Academy will begin distributing royalties due to UK songwriters and composers from Copydan. This is the first time that these royalties have ever been paid to UK music creators.
DEADLINE EXTENDED - Monday 10th June at 10am. The new call for works for the European Contemporary Composers Orchestra (ECCO) concert in Stockholm 2019 is open.
