Deadline: July 11, 2021, midnight PST
The 2021 Siminovitch Prize nominations portal is now open, and we are calling on the theatre community to submit nominations for the most prestigious prize in Canadian theatre.
Do you know an innovative mid-career theatre designer that deserves national recognition, $75,000, and the opportunity to support a fellow emerging designer with mentorship and $25,000? Nominations will be accepted until midnight on July 11, 2021, PST.
The innovation we see on Canadian theatre stages today is due in part to the investment of the Siminovitch Prize over the past two decades. Every fall, this national prize acknowledges a professional theatre artist working in English or French whose work is transformative and influential.
Nominees must have at least ten years of experience as professional designers and will have developed a marked personal style or artistic approach to their craft. The following aspects of the artist’s work will be evaluated: originality, sense of evolution, growing maturity, continuing experimentation, impact upon audiences, and influence upon younger artists. Additional eligibility criteria can be found here.
