The Ivors - Celebrating great music


The Performing Right Society (PRS) has proudly sponsored the Ivors for 32 years – one of the longest sponsorships in the music industry.

The Outstanding Contribution to British Music award has gone to a whole host of PRS members including Small Faces, The Clash, Kate Bush and Ray Davies. PRS Most Performed Work has included You’re Beautiful by James Blunt, Amanda Ghost and Sacha Skarbeck, Angels by Guy Chambers and Robbie Williams, and Back For Good by Gary Barlow. PRS also jointly sponsor the Special International Award with the Academy - winners include Stevie Wonder, Holland Dozier Holland, Gamble and Huff and Brian Wilson.

Fifty thousand composers, songwriters and music publishers are PRS members and receive royalties that PRS collects on their behalf. PRS is a leading not-for-profit European royalty collecting society.

Music is everywhere, every day: live performance, TV and radio, CDs, DVDs, downloads, streams and everything in between. Royalties create a future for music by supporting creators while they continue to write.
