This year, 70% of the twenty-six songwriters and composers recognised with an Ivor picked up an award for the first time – awesome! Harry Styles, Lianne La Havas, Dave and Fraser T Smith were the big winners this year, with Lianne La Havas winning 'Best Album' (what a record that is).

Other winners included Celeste and Jamie Hartman, Willow Kayne, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora – plus Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory were recognised with the Ivors inspiration award for their work as the electronic duo Goldfrapp. Via Ivors Academy
