Adele continues to add to her trophy mantle, picking up the coveted Songwriter of the Year honor at the 2012 Ivor Novello Awards.

The annual event salutes the best amongst U.K. songwriters. According to NME, Adele also scored the PRS trophy for Most Performed Work for her single ‘Rolling in the Deep.’ The singer told the audience, “I really didn’t think it was going to do anything!”

For much of the year, Adele’s biggest competition on the awards circuit in the U.K. was PJ Harvey. The singer didn’t attend the ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House, but still received recognition for ‘Let England Shake,’ which was dubbed Album of the Year.

Other winners of note included Lana Del Rey, who was saluted for Best Contemporary Song for ‘Video Games,’ Ed Sheeran, who received Best Song Musically and Lyrically for ‘The A Team,’ and Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, who won for Outstanding Song Collection. Career-spanning honors went to Siouxsie Sioux (Inspiration Award) and Mark Knopfler (Lifetime Achievement).

Adele is getting a chance to kick back after the success of her ’21’ album. She recently stated that there might be a new song out by the end of the year, but another album probably wouldn’t come until at least 2014.
