The Ivors Academy is hosting an event on Tuesday 19 November that will focus on current TV commissioning practises. 

Throughout the evening, panellists will explore the challenges that composers face within the environment and the steps that can be taken to develop good practice.

The panel will feature representatives from broadcasters Netflix, Sky and BBC, along with members of the composing and publishing communities.

Speakers include:

Nicky Bignell, head of music licensing, BBC Music Copyright
Dominic Walker, director, Radio & Music, Motion Gallery & Learning, BBC Studios
Harriet Moss, managing director, Manners McDade
Mark Ayres, composer and chair of The Ivors Academy Media Committee
Peter Bradbury, director of music, Sky
Dominic Houston, head of music, Netflix

In October, the Ivors Academy has revealed that The Ivors 2020 will be presented in association with Apple Music.

PRS for Music has renewed its commitment to the Ivors and will retain their longstanding relationship as the sponsors of two awards: the Most Performed Work and Icon Awards, which was formally known as the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award.

Tickets for the panel can be booked via Eventbrite here.
