Anywhere Awards

Along with the always popular audience vote for each region of the festival, this year we partnered with amazing creative people and organisations to sponsor awards.

The awards give more than just the kudos; they provide mentorship, expertise and resources for producers and performances makers to acknowledge the incredible performances we’ve experienced and to take their work to the next stage. 

The awards and winners are below.

Voting opens Monday 24 May and closed midnight Thursday 27 May 2021.

Numbers alone don't tell the story, as a one-off performance to thirty people can have as much chance as a performance with 500 audience members over its run. It is about the number of votes relative to the total number who saw the show along with the comments made by voters.

The Anywhere Award winners will be announced on Saturday 29 May 2021 live on the Anywhere Festival Facebook page.
