From Wikipedia:

The Ivor Novello Awards, named after the entertainer Ivor Novello, are awards for songwriting and composing. They have been presented annually in London by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) since 1956, and over 1,000 statuettes have been awarded.

The 25th Ivors were presented by BASCA and sponsored by PRS; they were held at the Grosvenor House, London. Paul McCartney was then awarded with the Ivor Novello Special Award For International Achievement.
