Coldplay, Sir Paul McCartney and Calvin Harris have been honoured at the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) awards in London.
McCartney was named 'Songwriter of the Year' for 'All You Need Is Love', 'Come Together' and 'Hello Goodbye' at the ceremony, which recognises the most performed works last year by writer and publisher members of UK collecting society PRS for Music.
Coldplay won 'Song of the Year' for 'Viva La Vida' and Calvin Harris was handed the ASCAP vanguard award for his debut album I Created Disco. Record label Universal was named 'Publisher of the Year' for having the most-performed winning songs over the 12-month period, including MIA's 'Paper Planes', Duffy's 'Mercy' and Coldplay's 'Viva La Viva'.
The Ting Tings scooped the college award for their debut album We Started Something at the event, which was held at the Grosvenor Hotel and included performances from Paul Williams and American soul singer Madeline Bell.
