The Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Awards Committee is seeking video and photo submissions from Edmonton-based theatre companies of theatrical productions (live and/or online) from their 2020/21 season to be displayed as part of a “Sterling-like” online event on June 28, 2021.
As was announced this past fall, this year’s ceremony will proceed as planned, but without the handing out of trophies. This year’s event will be a celebration of community, resilience, and the beginning of a community-wide conversation regarding fundamental shifts in how the Sterling Awards intend to operate in the future. Please consider participating in some of our upcoming surveys to let us know how to best celebrate the Edmonton Theatre community going forward.
We are also seeking testimonies and submissions to showcase how individual artists survived and art-ed throughout the past year (ie. a Stuck in the House video, a testimony about what the year has meant to them, a song). While we may not be able to include the entirety of each submission in the end product, our committee will recognize all companies and individuals who submit. Deadline for submissions is June 7, 2021.
Submissions can be sent to [email protected].
