The ASCAP Foundation Harold Adamson Lyric Awards
These awards, named in honor of the lyrist Harold Adamson writer of "Time on My Hands" and "An Affair to Remember" are presented annually to aspiring lyricists who participate in an ASCAP or ASCAP Foundation workshop in the musical theater, pop and/or country and R&S genres. Recipients must demonstrate talent and an intelligent and sensitive use of language, a talent and ability that the heirs of the late lyricist Harold Adamson, seek to recognize and foster in future generations. This award is funded by Harold Adamson's royalties. The recipients are selected by a panel of music industry professionals, including workshop mentors, at the conclusion of the appropriate workshop.
Eligible applicants must apply and be accepted into an ASCAP or ASCAP Foundation workshop, as noted above.
