We encourage all Perthlings to support your local WA talent this Fringe.

When you enjoy a Westralian show you are supporting our very own Homegrown Heroes, the talented local artists and performers that make our state and city shine. Thanks to Woodside for helping us shine the spotlight on the best in the West.


FRINGE WORLD Awards are given to the best shows in each of the 10 genre categories. Genre-specific panels (comprising over 130 judges in total) are charged with scoring shows according to a scale of 0-to-5 stars. The highest scoring shows in each category become our nominees.

Award winners get cash, development support and direct touring opportunities as part of their award. The Department of Culture and the Arts is also able to support WA-based genre award winners through its ArtFlight program.

The Martin Sims Award for Best WA Production is our top-tier prize and the winning show receives $10,000 and support to tour their show to festivals that are part of the World Fringe Alliance.

Weekly, we'll be announcing finalists in each genre category via the FRINGE WORLD Facebook page and e-news. Don't just take the judges' word for it, check out the finalists before their FRINGE season ends!
