Nominate for 2018 Australian Dance Awards

Were you excited or moved by a performance in 2017? 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 2018 Awards.

You might like to look at the eligible works list if you need help remembering what your saw in 2017. 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.

For an effective nomination in the most appropriate category, you should read the selection criteria first 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 several decades may also be nominated for an award for services to dance or serviced to dance 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.
