Apply to be considered for Brighton Fringe Best Newcomer 2019

Voice is heading back to Brighton Fringe and are on the lookout for the Best Newcomer

Apply to be considered for Brighton Fringe Best Newcomer 2019

Brighton Fringe is fast approaching and Voice is proud to once again be the official Youth Media Partner, and offering the Best Newcomer Award. 

Every year over 1000 shows head down to Brighton to take part in the largest arts festival in England, and we love finding new talent to highlight. That’s why we are running the Best Newcomer Award.  

Previous winners include Hidden Track for their ingenious, interactive play ‘Standard:Elite’, and Mumbelcrust Theatre for the delightfully charming ‘Tale of the Cockatrice’. 

Shows can be in any category (theatre, comedy, circus, visual arts etc.), there is only one condition for eligibility: it must be your first time at the Fringe. 

How to apply?

If you want to be considered for the award, then make sure that you are registered with Brighton Fringe, as they will be sending out the form to all eligible performers.

To be in the running you must apply by 17 April 2019 with details of your show, dates of performances, and information about your company or solo practice. 

Voice will create an internal long-list from the applicants, and then send a reviewer to one of your performances—don’t worry, we’ll arrange tickets directly through the Fringe. A final shortlist will be published before the award ceremony where we’ll announce the eventual winner.
