FRINGE WORLD Awards



About the FRINGE WORLD Awards

FRINGE WORLD Awards celebrate the best in the Festival and are a great tool to help you decide what shows you should see.

A judging panel made up of over 100 individuals from across the cultural industries in Perth see Festival events and have the tough time of deciding which shows are worthy of receiving prizes.

Weekly Award Winners are announced each Wednesday during the Festival for genre categories along with some special awards that are unique to FRINGE WORLD. Sign up to our e-news and follow us on Facebook to find out who's a weekly winner.

An Award Ceremony is held at the end of the Festival where the overall FRINGE WORLD Award Winners are announced. Overall Award winners get cash, development support and direct touring opportunities as part of their award.

The Martin Sims award for Best WA Production is our top-tier prize and the winning artist receives $10,000 and development support to tour their work to other national and international Fringe Festivals that are part of the World Fringe Alliance. 

FRINGE WORLD Awards are supported thanks to the Fringe Fund.
