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 the calendar year, January to December.

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.

Performing Arts WA takes conflicts of interest very seriously. We guarantee that any conflicts of interest are noted and that actions are put in place to ensure they do not affect the outcome of the awards.
