British Composer Awards 2018
The British Composer Awards were created by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) in 2003 and are sponsored by PRS for Music. They are presented in association with BBC Radio 3, which provides exclusive broadcast coverage of the Awards.
The Awards promote the art of composition, recognise the creative talent of composers and sound artists, and bring their music to a wider audience. They are unique in making contemporary music, jazz and sonic art the focus of their annual celebration.
Since 2016, the British Composer Awards also honour composers with awards recognising their contribution to British music. These awards are in the gift of the British Composer Awards Committee; which is a sub-committee of the main BASCA Board.
Winning works and recipients will be recognised by a presentation to the composer at the award ceremony and will be the focus of a BBC Radio 3 broadcast about the Awards.
