Disclaimer

In any given judging year, the listed categories are referred to according to the productions presented for potential nomination.

If the judges consider that there are no eligible individuals or productions presenting for a particular category in that judging year then that category will not be represented in the award ceremony.

Also, the judges may create new categories if there is a significant theatrical focus emerging that is worthy of recognition and award.
