Ivor Novello’s add Best Game Score Award

55th Awards Include Best Original Video Game Score Category For First Time. Deadline for entries 5th February 2010

BASCA is delighted to announce a new category this year: Best Original Video Game Score.

Scores are eligible for a video game that was commercially released in the UK during the year ending 31 December 2009. Under the standard Ivors rules all entries must have a British or Irish composing contribution of at least one third. Non-British or non-Irish nationals are eligible for nomination, provided the writer(s) were ordinarily resident in the UK during the year ending 31 December 2009.

Commenting on the new category, Mark Fishlock, BASCA director and member of The Ivors Committee, says The Ivors has always sought to reflect the ever-changing world of songwriting and composing. The video games market has matured beyond recognition and big budget orchestral scores are regularly being commissioned. Writing music for games also requires a number of specialist skills compared with conventional film scoring, such as non-linear and multi-layered composition. This is a very exciting development and one which hopefully will be fully embraced by the rapidly growing games world.

So, in the true spirit of awards where would your vote go on this one? Modern Warfare 2? Mario? Wii Fit (joke!)? Let us know which game you think had the best musical score in 2009.
