FRINGE WORLD Awards are given to the best shows in each genre category, plus there are a bunch of special awards that are unique to FRINGE WORLD. 

Shows are judged by a panel made up of more than 100 volunteers from across the cultural industries in Perth. 

2020 Award nominations are updated every day during Fringe and the winners will be announced at a ceremony on February 16 (the last day of the Festival).

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.
