Ivors Nominee songbooks are collectors items with copies usually limited to attendees of the award ceremony itself.
These songbooks are never normally made available for purchase and as a collection of songs and arrangements they are unique.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these limited edition titles, follow these four steps:
- Choose a song from one this year’s Ivor Novello artists: Adele, Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, James Blake, Lana Del Rey, Take That, PJ Harvey, Kate Bush or Nero
- Practice the track to perfection or come up with own original take on the song
- Record a video of yourself performing your cover
- Post your entry in a comment below this blog or email it to us at email@example.com by midnight on Wednesday June 13
The winners will be chosen on the quality and creativity of their entries.
There is no limit on how far you can take your covers and originality is encouraged—choral takes on James Blake, death metal reimaginings of PJ Harvey or even straight, polished-to-perfection recitals of Adele are all more than welcome—we want to hear what you can come up with!
The deadline for entries is midnight on Wednesday June 13, with the winner announced shortly afterwards.
You can either post your entry as a comment below or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
