Were you excited or moved by a performance in 2016? Did a particular dancer deliver a stunning performance? Perhaps you saw some outstanding and innovative choreography? Now is the time to submit your nominations for the 2017 Awards, to be presented in Melbourne in November.
You can nominate a choreographer, a dancer, a company or a piece of choreography for an Australian Dance Award by going to the ‘Nominate’ pages on the Australian Dance Awards website http://www.australiandanceawards.net.au/nominate/
You might like to look at the Eligible Works list http://www.australiandanceawards.net.au/nominate/2017-eligible-works-list if you need help remembering what your saw last year. This list is collated throughout the year and is intended as a reminder only. If you think a work is missing please email the Nominations Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
For an effective nomination in the most appropriate category, you should read the Selection Criteria first http://www.australiandanceawards.net.au/nominate/selection-criteria/ and be sure to provide a meaningful and concise comment about why you think a performance/performer is exceptional and worthy.
Professional writers, teachers, designers etc. working extensively in the dance sector over many years may also be nominated for an award for services or education. Nominees for a Lifetime Achievement award must be prominent senior figures in the Australian dance community who have dedicated at least 40 years to the industry.
Nominations for 2017 close 28 February.
