About the FRINGE WORLD Awards

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.

Every Wednesday during the Festival, we announce the Weekly Award Winners on Facebook with the overall winners are revealed in a ceremony on 13 February. Be sure to check out the Weekly Award Winners before their seasons end!
