Other industry suppliers and businesses have pledged their backing and support for the event including PRS For Music and PPL who take ownership of the Gold and Lifetime Awards respectively, plus Arqiva and RCS are major award sponsors again while alongside Sharpstream as a partner, veteran jingle producer David Arnold – the creator of the jazz fm musical logo now in its 21st year – continues to support the evening.
Jazz FM Content Director Nick Pitts says “At the centre of jazz is collaboration and we embody this ethos in everything we do. Therefore having many of these important ‘behind the scenes’ partners wanting to join us in celebrating the great and the good of the genre is very exciting and we are proud to have their name in lights on the night. Our listeners benefit directly also so it’s a win win – we wouldn’t have an awards without our sponsors and partners and for that, we thank them”.
