Adele accepting her awards British singer Adele won two Ivor Novello awards for songwriting, adding to a lengthening list of musical accolades, but she lost out in the best album and song categories. The annual awards, in their 57th year - are highly regarded within the industry because they are voted for by songwriters and composers.
Accepting her songwriting award from Annie Lennox, a tearful Adele said she had learned from the reviews of her first album.
She said: \"The main thing was the songs weren\'t as good as my voice, and I took that on board and now I\'m winning songwriter of the year.\"
Eurythmics singer Lennox said she had been struck by Adele\'s talent when they had performed on Later With Jools Holland.
\"It was like lightning had struck,\" said Lennox. \"She doesn\'t need talent shows and competitions and hype - this is the real deal.\"
The 24-year-old chart queen picked up two coveted Ivor Novello prizes for the most performed song of 2011 (\"Rolling in the Deep\") and songwriter of the year.
She was also nominated for best song musically and lyrically (Rolling in the Deep) but was beaten by Ed Sheeran\'s \"The A Team\", and in the album category Adele\'s record-breaking \"21\" was shortlisted but lost out to PJ Harvey\'s \"Let England Shake\".
In a year dominated by female artists, it was little surprise to see rising US star Lana Del Rey won best contemporary song award for \"Video Games\", co-written by Briton Justin Parker.
The best television soundtrack was Martin Phipps\' composition for \"The Shadow Line\", and Alex Heffes won the best film score with \"The First Grader\".
Former boy band Take That won a prize for their outstanding contribution to British music.
A number of honorary awards were presented by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (Basca), which organises the ceremony at London\'s Grosvenor House Hotel.
The accolade for outstanding song collection went to Spandau Ballet\'s Gary Kemp, who described it as “the greatest honour of my career\".
He added: \"It makes me feel very happy for that 12-year-old boy in 1972 who wrote songs on his bed and thought he might be weird.\"
Siouxsie Sioux was named the Ivors Inspiration, the lifetime achievement gong went to Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, and veteran pianist Stan Tracey won the Ivors\' first jazz award.
Musical maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber was given a Basca Fellowship, joining names including Elton John, Paul McCartney and Tim Rice.
