David Ferguson (1953 – 2009) was one of Britain’s most successful television composers. He served for six years as chairman of The Ivors Academy and was awarded a Fellowship, our highest honour. David dedicated much of his life to campaigning about the rights of songwriters and composers. In 2013, David left a portion of his estate to The Ivors Academy Trust to support our education programmes.
