Making Music presents a number of awards, bursaries and prizes to individual musicians, groups and organisations in both the voluntary and professional sector.

Some of these, such as the Award for Young Concert Artists, are awarded to young musicians at the beginning of their careers. Others, such as the Groves Prizes, recognise lifelong contributions to the musical life of the UK.
