'Best Game Score' award now a permanent feature at the prestigious event

Organisers for the 56th Ivor Novello Awards are now accepting nominations for six categories, including videogame score.

Joris de Man (pictured, left, with Sony UK boss Michael Denny) was last year honoured as the first to receive an Ivor award for music in games, taking the prize for the Abbey Road-recorded Killzone 2 score.

The Ivor Novello Awards now has ‘Best Original Video Game Score’ as a permanent category.

Nominations opened this week and close February 4th.

Scores are eligible for a video game that was commercially released in the UK during the calendar year. All entries must have a British or Irish composing contribution of at least one third.
