The 55th annual Ivor Novello Awards was, once again, heralded an unmitigated success. The event is seen as the pinnacle of British songwriting events and is organized by BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors) and sponsored by UK performing right organization PRS for Music.

London's Grosvenor House hotel hosted the star-studded awards show on May 20, 2010, which saw ASCAP member Greg Kurstin pick up three awards for Best Song Musically and Lyrically ("The Fear"), PRS for Music Most Performed Work ("The Fear") and Songwriter of the Year.

ASCAP is proud to represent these winners and congratulates them and all of the nominees.
