Our Sponsors

BASCA is grateful to the following organisations for their continued support and sponsorship of the Gold Badge Awards.

The 2017 Gold Badge Awards are sponsored by PPL and PRS for Music.

Founded in 1934, PPL is the UK music industry’s collective management organisation (CMO) for tens of thousands of performers and record companies. We license recorded music in the UK when it is played in public (shops, bars, nightclubs, offices etc.) or broadcast (BBC, commercial radio, commercial TV etc.) and ensure that revenue flows back to our members. These include both independent and major record companies, together with performers ranging from emerging grassroots artists through to established session musicians and influential festival headliners.

PPL has a market-leading international collections business, with 83 agreements in place across 43 countries, helping members to maximise their revenue when their repertoire is played overseas. We collected £197 million in the UK and internationally in 2015 and paid over 71,000 performers and record companies.
