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.

PPL is the music licensing company which works on behalf of record companies and performers to license recorded music played in public (at pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, offices and many other business types) and broadcast (on TV, radio and online) across the UK.

Our members include major record labels and independents as well as globally successful performers and session musicians, ranging from orchestral players to percussionists and singers. PPL also operates an international royalty collection service helping members to get paid when their music is played internationally.

PRS for Music represents the rights of 100,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers, and is part of an international network of collecting societies. It is one of the largest societies in Europe and has been in operation since 1914.

Members are paid royalties when their music is used in a number of ways: when it is recorded onto any format and distributed to the public; performed or played in public; broadcast; or made publicly available online.

PRS for Music has proudly sponsored the Ivor Novello Awards since 1974 and each year title sponsors three accolades at the ceremony; the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award, the Most Performed Work Award and the Special International Award.
