About the FRINGE WORLD Awards

The Festival traditionally concludes with the presentation of the FRINGE WORLD Awards, which are based on Weekly Award Winners judged throughout the Festival. Due to the lockdown and show cancellations the Festival made the difficult decision to not present the 2021 FRINGE WORLD Awards with the prize money being diverted to Fringe Fund.

Find Weekly Award Winners with shows still running

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

Only shows before the lockdown were judged in 2021. Unfortunately, venue restrictions during the final weeks of the Festival prevented the judging to continue.

If a show has won a 2021 FRINGE WORLD Weekly Award and has sessions still running this Festival, you can find them here.
