ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards
- The ASCAP Film & TV Awards are given since 1986 and honor (ASCAP) composers, lyricists and publishers of the most performed music from television and top box office movies.
- The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a music performing-rights organization which was founded in 1914. It is the world's largest organization of its kind with over 130,000 composer, lyricist and music publisher members. ASCAP is committed to protecting the rights of its members by licensing and collecting royalties for the public performance of their copyrighted works, and then distributing these fees to the Society's members based on performances. ASCAP's repertory spans the entire spectrum of music - from pop to symphonic, rock to gospel, Latin to country, to jazz, rhythm and blues, theater, film and television music. ASCAP's Board of Directors is made up solely of writers and publishers elected by the membership. (from a press release, 2002)
