"Donna has received the ASCAPlus award for her work as a performing songwriter for 4 consecutive years (2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008)"
ASCAPLUS is an awards program that provides cash and recognition to:
1) Active writers in the early and mid stages of their careers/
2) To established writers whose main activity is outside of broadcast media.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
The ASCAPLUS Awards Program is for writer members of any genre whose performances are primarily in venues not surveyed; and/or writer members whose catalogs have prestige value for which they would not otherwise be compensated.
WHO DETERMINES AWARDS
ASCAPLUS Awards are determined annually by a panel of distinguished music experts who are neither members, nor employees of ASCAP, and are completely independent in their Award adjudication.
HOW AWARDS ARE DETERMINED
ASCAPLUS Awards are based on panel review of recent activity of writer applicants.
Each applicant is considered on merit and in the context of all others applying.
ASCAPLUS is not a contest or competition involving the critical evaluation of any specific work or works. The primary basis for panel determinations is the activity generated by each member's catalog, with emphasis on recent performances.
