Adele at the ivor novello awards may 17th 2012
Nicknamed The Ivors, the awards take place each May and are sponsored by PRS for Music. They are respected worldwide as the major platform for recognising and rewarding Britain and Ireland's songwriting and composing talents. The Ivors remain the only award ceremony in the musical calendar that is not influenced by publishers and record companies, but judged and presented by the writing community.
The Award itself is a solid bronze sculpture of Euterpe, the muse of lyric poetry.
