Established in 2018, The New Elizabethan Award for guitarists and lutenists is designed to alternate biennially with the long-established Ivor Mairants Guitar Award (which concentrates predominantly on jazz influenced repertoire). The NEA will concentrate instead upon the music of the 16th century, providing a link to the period between the Company's foundation in 1500 and its first Royal Charter in 1604.
