Their awards aren't based on an application process, rather it all comes down to the views of the review team. If a reviewer believes a show is worthy of an award, it is then re-seen by another reviewer or reviewers. If the award is confirmed, the company will be notified of their success.

Winners receive:

  • A limited-edition Fringe Review golden teapot.
  • A free registration for Brighton Fringe 2025.
