On the last day of the festival (June 24th) we host our Award Ceremony and Closing Night Party. We hand out two types of awards: the Community Awards (top shows by category and also the all-around “Top of the Fringe” award), which are determined by votes from Fringers; and Sponsored Awards, which are awarded by organizations outside of the Fringe. Check out last year’s award winners here

In order to sponsor an award, you must meet a number of requirements, including the following:

  • Naming requirements (no fringe-specific superlatives)
  • Requirement to provide a physical award to the winner at the Fringe Award Ceremony
  • Details on eligibility and how the winner will be selected
  • You may present ONE award (if presenting to multiple awardees, they must all be called to the stage at the same time).

And perhaps most importantly, Sponsored Award applications must be submitted by May 1st. Get more information on the requirements and application process here.
