OffFest – Fringe / Theatre Festival Award

This is a new award, introduced in July 2019, originally for the Camden Fringe.  It was extended in 2019 to include the Voila Europe! festival.  In 2020, it is hoped to expand the award to encompass other Fringe or theatre festivals in London.

The assessment process varies depending on the nature of the festival – it may be via a team of existing online reviewers and bloggers or it can be via peer reviewers.
