Apart from the Offies awards (which are primarily for full run productions), there is the Offies People’s Vote and a number of Offies Commendation awards, and this webpage provides summary information on each of these, and a link to the relevant webpage where you can find more detailed information. All awards operate on a calendar year basis.
The People’s Vote are awards across a number of categories and are for independent, alternative and fringe venues across Greater London. These are voted for by members of the public towards the end of each year and are also announced at the annual Offies awards ceremony.

The OffComm is the Offies Commendation for short run shows with a minimum of 3-4 performances. A number of reviewers have agreed to act as assessors for the OffComm award. You can invite these reviewers / assessors to your show – and if the show receives at least two 4-5* reviews, it will receive an OffComm.
