BASCA is delighted to announce that PPL will sponsor the 45th Gold Badge Awards, which take place on Friday 19 October at The Savoy in London.
At BASCA we know becoming successful in the music industry is a team sport, not a solo sprint. That’s why we created the Gold Badge Awards back in 1973. These award are an opportunity for our professional members to acknowledge contributions in support of their professional lives. Recognising individuals who have gone the extra mile to promote, support or inspire creativity and in doing so ensure there is a thriving community of songwriters and composers here in the UK.
Founded in 1934, PPL is the UK music industry’s collective management organisation (CMO) for tens of thousands of performers and record companies. PPL 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 their 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. They collected £197 million in the UK and internationally in 2015 and paid over 71,000 performers and record companies.
