For the hall of fame of Canada, see Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The Songwriters' Hall of Fame is an arm of[ambiguous] the American National Academy of Popular Music. It was founded in 1969 by songwriter Johnny Mercer and music publishers Abe Olman and Howie Richmond. The hall of fame only existed as an online virtual collection until 2010, when it was first put on display as a physical gallery inside The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.[1] The Songwriters Hall of Fame has an office in New York City, United States,[where?] and holds workshops, showcases,[where?][when?] and provides scholarships to promising artists to help develop new songwriting talent. New inductees are voted on annually.[when?][who?]

Alongside the induction of new songwriters are a variety of special awards. Currently, the awards include:

  • Johnny Mercer Award: for artists who are already in the Songwriters' Hall of Fame and have a number of outstanding works
  • Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award: for songwriters who have done a lot to increase the success of songs
  • Abe Olman Publisher Award: for publishers who have had a lot of "famous" pieces
  • Hal David Starlight Award: for young artists who have already made an impression on the music industry[2]
  • Towering Song/Towering Performance Award
  • Pioneer Award: established in 2012 to recognize the career of a historic creator of an extensive body of musical work that has been a major influence on generations of songwriters

Through 2010, 383 individuals had been inducted into the SHOF. The British rock band Queen was the first band to be inducted in 2003.[3][4]
