The 62nd Ivor Novello Awards take place on Thursday 18 May 2017 at the Grosvenor House, London. They are presented by BASCA in association with PRS for Music.
The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in songwriting and composing. Created by BASCA in 1956, they are named in honour of Ivor Novello, Britain’s most successful and distinguished theatrical composer at the time, and represent the pinnacle of musical achievement and peer recognition in the music industry. The Ivors have been sponsored by PRS for Music since 1974.
The awards fullfil one of BASCA’s key aims to celebrate excellence and promote songwriting and composing. The awards are governed by The Ivors Committee, which itself is a sub committee of the BASCA board. In addition to The Ivors Committee each nominated award category, with the exception of PRS for Music Most Performed Work, is judged by separate juries, which are entirely populated by songwriters and composers.
BASCA will announce nominations for the 62nd Ivor Novello Awards on Wednesday 19 April 2017 at a press breakfast at The Club at The Ivy, London.
The award ceremony itself takes place on Thursday 18 May 2017 in The Great Room, Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London from 11.30am to 4.30pm.
