Frequently Asked Questions

We will be updating this section as often as we can answer your most frequently asked questions.


When is the next awards night?

The 2018 awards event will be held in April 2019. Details to be confirmed in late 2018.

What about 2017?

Because of the transition to a new system and in the interests of fairness, shows from 2017 will be judged retrospectively by the new judges. This means that all works will be eligible, whether they were seen by a judge under the old system or not. The 2017 nominations will be announced in mid 2018, and the winners will be recognised at an informal event mid year. Details will be confirmed in early 2018.

who are the judges?

how does the judging work?

There is a panel of 10-13 judges per category (theatre and dance). For your show to be considered, there must be at least three judges in attendance at your performance season. The judging period covers January to December 2018.

Following the performances, judges will complete an assessment survey. At the end of the year, the judges will review their assessments and the scores will be combined. The panel will meet to decide on the nominees and winners.
