The 2011 Ivors once again feature a broad cross section of musical talent and style from both internationally known stars and lesser known new talent. This year's nominees include The XX, Plan B, Everything Everything and Kylie Minogue.
The Ivors celebrate the outstanding writing achievements of songwriters, composers and their music publishers. The awards either celebrate artistic excellence in a specific work, exceptional performance figures in the award year or recognise the outstanding achievements of a particular songwriter or composer throughout their career.
The Ivors continue to be acknowledged as the most widely coveted awards for British songwriters and composers in the world.
They are judged and presented by the song writing and composing community.
