The Western Australia Presenter of the Year and The Western Australian Producer of the Year
‘The Western Australian Presenter of the Year’ and ‘The Western Australian Producer of the Year’ Pinnacle Awards return for 2021 – and we are seeking your nominees. The Awards celebrate the best in our business and recognise excellent work being done in building inclusive, thriving communities enlivened with rich cultural expression and engagement right across Western Australia. The awards are open to any and all performing arts presenters and producers in WA. In this case ‘producer’ can apply to an individual artist or independent group, a small to medium organisation, or a major. While ‘presenter’ applies to venues in the metro or outer metro areas of Perth and regional venues throughout the State. It could also include an organisation regularly presenting work in many venues or without a venue.
We will be looking for nominations for both Awards. The top four nominations in each category will be assessed by a panel to choose the 2021 recipients. The presentation of The Pinnacles will be made at WA Showcase 2021.
You can nominate up to three producers or presenters and your reasons at the survey link at the bottom of the page, it doesn’t matter who you are you can nominate both or either. Its very important to give the reasons for the nomination.
The criterion for the award is “Excellence” in all its forms. Your nominations can be based on anything you feel meets this criterion be it through your experience of your nominees through a partnership or collaboration, of a venue you have been to on a tour, or of an artist/company that you hosted/presented. It can even be based on your knowledge of that nominee and their contribution to the sector or their community. Whilst you could nominate yourself, we suggest this is a chance to recognise excellence in others.
Note that 2020’s winners Sensorium Theatre and Rave About Arts (Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council) are not eligible for nomination or to win in 2021.
Honour your peers and make your nominations now.
