Approximately $2.7 million in cash awards for 2009 - 2010 has been made to writer members of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) by the Society's ASCAPlus Awards Panels, it was announced today by ASCAP President & Chairman Paul Williams. The purpose of these special awards, which have been given each year since 1960, is to reward writers whose works have a unique prestige value for which adequate compensation would not otherwise be received, and to compensate those writers whose works are performed substantially in media not surveyed by ASCAP.

Commenting on the awards, Mr. Williams said, "This is the 50th year of the unique ASCAPlus Awards. The program, established back in 1960, has consistently provided deserving music creators with something meaningful and tangible in the form of recognition and money. We are greatly indebted to each of our hard-working panelists for giving their time and effort to this important endeavor."

The members of the ASCAPlus Awards Panel are: Judith Clurman, noted choral conductor and arranger; Peter Filichia, drama critic for the (Newark) Star-Ledger; Brian Mansfield, country music authority and Nashville correspondent for USA Today; Melinda Newman, well-known music journalist; Pat Prescott, veteran radio personality who currently co-hosts the morning show on KTWV ("The Wave") in Los Angeles; H. Robert Reynolds, Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan; and Steve Smith, Classical Music Editor for Time Out New York.
