The board of directors of the 2018 Liverpool International Theatre Festival is calling for submissions for original designs for this year’s festival awards.

This is a wonderful opportunity to have the unique honour of showcasing your artwork at the international level. These awards will be presented to participants from around the globe and will serve as a one-of-a-kind Maritime keepsake for each winner.

Interested artists are asked to consider that the awards should be lightweight and easily packed for travel. Please consider packaging for travel within your submission. In addition, the award should incorporate the LITF brand – the Jester Fish and provide a place to identify the award (e.g. Best Canadian Production, Best Actor). Ten awards are required, with a budget of $2,000, including HST. The successful artist will also be highlighted in the festival program.

Your submission should include:

  • the medium the award will be designed in;
  • description of the award (maximum 250 words) and sketch or photo of a similar piece;
  • dimensions of the award;
  • written commitment to have awards completed by October 11, 2018.

To make a submission or to ask any questions, please contact Annette Burke at 902-350-0551 or via e-mail at The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2018.
