Ivor Novello Award Winners 2014
The 59th annual Ivor Novello Awards were presented on Thursday (22nd May) during a glamorous ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London. The converted Songwriter of the Year gong was presented to Tom Odell, while Nile Rodgers, Christine McVie and Jeff Beck were all honoured with special awards.

Intended to honour excellence in British music writing, the Ivor Novello Awards are presented by BASCA, the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, which is the professional association for music writers in the UK. The ‘Ivors’ have been sponsored by PRS for Music since 1974 and are judged by members of the UK’s song-writing and composing community.

“BASCA is delighted that in their 59th year The Ivors continue to recognise the best young and emerging talent that the UK has to offer whilst celebrating the enduring catalogues of some of our outstanding songwriters and composers. I congratulate everyone who has received an Ivor Novello Award today,” enthused BASCA chairman, Simon Darlow.
