The Scottish Emerging Theatre Awards 2021
The Scottish Emerging Theatre Awards 2021 are a celebration of the emerging talent in Scottish theatre. Featuring 10 categories designed to showcase the best of the sector, we are pleased to present the inaugural awards to recognise the amazing work that often goes unnoticed.
On this page you'll find the categories and criteria, we recommend reading through them and if anyone springs to mind then nominate via our form here!
Successful artists will be acknowledged via an award ceremony on the 16th December 2021, taking place on Zoom (tickets available soon). Winners will receive an hour-long networking session with an established theatre company, designed to support their development!
Thursday 9th December at 5pm
You can nominate individuals, companies or specific projects for the awards - dependent on the category. You should only fill out the nomination form once per nominee, selecting as many categories as appropriate and giving as much information as possible!
Each category has a tagline, please check nominee eligibility against these and be prepared to explain why.
Nominated artists/projects or companies should be Scotland-based.
Nominated projects/productions should have taken place from 1st December 2020 - 30th November 2021.
All individuals, and nominated projects or companies should be led by early-career/emerging artists. We are putting no criteria on what this means! If you feel like it applies to you or the artists you are nominating, then the nomination is eligible!
