The 2010 Ivors showcase some of the best British song writers, not only A-list celebrities such as Dizzee Rascal, La Roux and Lily Allen, but also lesser known bright stars such as Patch William and The Leisure Society.
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.
