Harold Adamson

These awards, named in honor of the lyricist 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 or showcase 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 mentors, at the conclusion of the appropriate workshop or showcase.

Eligible applicants must apply and be accepted into an ASCAP or ASCAP Foundation workshop, as noted above.
