The Anywhere Awards are back for another year, bigger and and better than ever.
Along with the always popular audience vote, this year we have 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 Anywhere Award winners will be announced on Saturday 29 May 2021.

On Monday 24, the day after Anywhere Festival finishes, we open up audience voting until 5pm Friday 28 May.
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.
