About the awards

The Youth Music Awards 2021 in association with Hal Leonard Europe is back for a second year!

The Awards are presented in association with Hal Leonard Europe, which is part of Hal Leonard, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of printed music and educational resources.

The Youth Music Awards celebrate the achievements of young people taking part in the projects we fund, who are making music in all genres, all over the country, every day. They also recognise the organisations and music leaders that are tirelessly working on the frontline, going above and beyond to help the next generation of young musicians progress personally, socially and musically. The awards are open to anyone who has taken part in a Youth Music funded project since January 2015.

Music awards will be judged by a panel of music industry figures including Eve, Daisy Maskell, George the Poet, Chris Price and more to be announced, and we have some serious money-can't-buy experiences as prizes for award winners.

The Youth Music Awards will take place on Wednesday 20 October 2021 at Troxy, London*, where the winners will be announced. 

Nominations for the Youth Music Awards 2021 in association with Hal Leonard Europe are now closed. 

To see all the 2019 judges, shortlisted nominees and sponsors read the brochure.

**This event was originally scheduled for Wednesday 21 October 2020 and has been rescheduled, due to the coronavirus pandemic, for the safety of our guests.
