Songwriters Hall of Fame

The National Association of Popular Music[?]'s Songwriters Hall of Fame was founded in 1969 by songwriter Johnny Mercer and publishers Abe Olman[?] and Howie Richmond[?]. The NAPM/SHOF is also devoted to the development of new songwriting talent through workshops, showcases and scholarships. New inductees are voted on annually.

At each annual event, gifted and promising songwriters are awarded a scholarship called the Abe Olman Publisher's Award for Excellence in Songwriting[?], named for one of the founding members.

For a list of the inductees, see list of songwriters.
