BASCA Opens the Call for Entries for the 63rd Ivor Novello Awards

The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British and Irish songwriting and composing. The Call for Entries is now open. BASCA invites eligible entries in the following six categories:

Best Song Musically and Lyrically
Best Contemporary Song
Album Award
Best Original Film Score
Best Television Soundtrack
Best Original Video Game Score

Anyone can enter an eligible work and the deadline is Friday 9th February 2018.

After a successful consultation with the media composing community BASCA has announced that it is reviving the award for Best Original Video Game Score. The award recognises outstanding composition for a video game. Games released in the UK during the calendar year ending 31st December 2017 with a British or Irish composed score are eligible for nomination.

This year also sees entries submitted via BASCA’s Award Entry Site for the first time. Please visit https://basca.secure-platform.com/a for more information, including BASCA’s Rules and Guidelines for the 63rd Ivor Novello Awards.

Crispin Hunt, BASCA Chair, said “The last year has seen myriad ground-breaking musical releases from across myriad ground-breaking musical genres and each and every one deserves a shot at winning an Ivor. I strongly encourage the Industry and beyond to enter the works they love. The Ivors is, as ever, about Music judged by its fellow creators —if a work deserves to win, it can. Whether it was released from a global powerhouse or a bedroom matters not, whether it nourishes and moves the listener matters a lot. BASCA looks forward to a rich and diverse array of works from across the musical curve to help make 2018 another legendary Ivor Novello Awards.”
