Entry Information and Registration
Become a part of the Tasmanian Theatre Awards and register your production for the 2018 season.
The Awards are designed to celebrate excellence in the performing arts throughout Tasmania. There are over 30 Awards spread across four key categories:
2. Community Theatre
3. Community Music Theatre
4. Physical Theatre
To be considered for the awards, you confirm that:
The origins and creative development of your production are primarily based in Tasmania (ie. national touring shows are not eligible)
Your production’s season run is between 1 January and 31 December of the current judging year for the 2018 awards. (Productions for the 2017 awards were eligible for the 1 February 2016 – 31 January 2017 judging year.)
You will submit the online registration below (with as much notice as possible – preferably four weeks from opening)
The producer is theatre or performing arts group which is a paid-up and current TCT Organisational member (apply for membership here)
You agree to allow up to twelve (12) tickets and six programs for judging purposes. Programs assist with the identification of production personnel, to access director’s notes and other guidance or background on the production. TCT also welcome any additional information you may wish to provide.
Judges will book direct their tickets directly with the nominated contact for your production.
Productions which have been registered in one year cannot be re-entered in the Awards unless there is a substantial change
- The members of your cast and production team understand and accept their automatic inclusion for the full range of Tasmania Theatre Awards (NB individuals do not have to be current TCT members, although TCT welcomes all support from the sector).
*Once your production registration is received, it will be published on the TCT’s Tasmanian Theatre Awards website and promoted via the TCT newsletter. TCT aims to increase audience participation across Tasmania and seeks your support in offering TCT individual members a special or concession ticket price.
Our judges bring a high level of skill and experience to their roles gained over many years working within the performing arts sector. Our Judges take on considerable responsibility, not only for the amount of time have they volunteered in traveling around Tasmania to complete their judging assignments but also, for the professional, considerate and ethical manner in which they undertake this role.
Each judging panel operates independently of the other three and is responsible for the assessment of all productions registered within their particular Award category. TCT policy requires that no member of a particular panel can be personally involved in, or connected to, any production which comes before that panel for assessment during that year’s judging period. Where this conflict of interest might occur, a judge will stand aside from the panel and all judging within that year.
Production companies are asked to refrain from seeking individual Judge’s assessments following a particular production.
