During the Amsterdam Fringe Festival 5 awards are being handed out.
Amsterdam Fringe Jury Awards
Every year on the final day of the festival the winners of the Amsterdam Fringe Awards are announced. There are several awards to be handed out: the Amsterdam Fringe Awards for this years’ best 3 performances, the Try Again, Fail Better Award and the International Bursary Award.
The three winners of the Amsterdam Fringe Awards are chosen by an international jury that visits all shows and selects the winners each year. The winners will win a spot at the Best of Fringe Tour, which will take place again in spring 2020 in The Netherlands. In order to win this price the show must be Dutch based and able to travel. They will also win a spot on the Amsterdam Fringe Festival in the future.
The Fringe Jury also chooses the winner of the International Bursary, a prize of € 3.500 to spend on performing at an international Fringe Festival like Brighton Fringe, Prague Fringe or Edinburgh Fringe. This show must be translatable to English and able to travel.
