SCL Awards Nominations

Share

On behalf of the Society of Composers & Lyricists, it gives me great pleasure to announce the nominations for our inaugural SCL Awards. Not only do I want to thank everyone who entered, but also the vast number of you who took the time to review the entries and cast your votes. The support the Awards have been shown by our community has been all we’d hoped for and more. So I want to thank you for getting us off to a great start.

The Final Voting Round opens on December 12, 2019 and closes on January 3, 2020.

The Awards ceremony will be held on January 7, 2020, at the Skirball Cultural Center, and member invitations will be included in the Final Voting Round announcement.

Good luck to all the nominees.
