For the first time this year, we’ll be celebrating and recognising outstanding creativity and stand-out performances at the Cape Town Fringe with an exciting new awards programme – the Fringe Fresh Awards.
Awards will be made across five categories:
  • FRESH Music Award: outstanding musician, band or music ensemble
  • FRESH Performer Award: stand-out performance by an artist in any genre
  • FRESH Creative Award: outstanding arts practitioner making or realising work in any genre (producer, writer, composer, designer, choreographer, etc.)
  • FRESH Audience Award: as voted for by the audience. If you buy a ticket to any show at the Cape Town Fringe, you’ll be invited to rate and review it on the CTFringe app after the performance. These ratings will help decide the winner.
  • FRESH Fabulous Award: an artist or arts organisation working in any genre whose work embodies the spirit of Cape Town
A panel of industry experts drawn from across the arts and cultural spectrum will nominate candidates in the music, performer and creative categories during the Fringe. We’re keeping the panel anonymous until the end, when we’ll announce it along with the winners in all five categories at the celebratory wrap in October.
