Underbelly Adelaide Award

What is the Award?
Underbelly will produce the winning show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This means that financially we will risk on production costs up to £7,000 (but excluding flights to the UK) and operationally we will promote and general manage the winning show through our productions arm. The show will have all of Underbelly’s Edinburgh experience, know-how and facilities behind it.

Award Criteria
We are looking for an innovative show that truly entertains, stimulates and fascinates. Our preference is for new writing / newly conceived productions rather than established texts and ideally we are looking for a production that falls within the Theatre, Comedy or Cabaret classifications.
The award is open to companies performing at the Adelaide Fringe, and only shows that our scouts are able to watch will be considered.
Eligible productions can be from any country.

Eligible shows must not have been performed in the UK, except for a maximum of six preview performances.
If you have any further queries in regards to the eligibility of your show, for further information, please email underbellyaward@underbelly.co.uk
