The Hecklers 2017- Time To Nominate!

  1-8-17

 

It's that time of the year again, and it's now time for the community to express their favourite! We've had an amazing time last year at Orange Peel; the artists and the supporters who came made a memorable experience for everyone. This year, due to renovation, we are bringing the ceremony to Social Room in Soho.

 

 

 

 

 

We look forward to a chill, yet vibrant and fun night celebrating the Hong Kong scene and those who have made a solid contribution towards the year. This year we have included a new category dedicated to youth theatre, as we think the local young talents deserve their recognition for their work and effort!

 

 

 

Rules of Voting
 

 

*This is an award ceremony to celebrate artists who live and work in Hong Kong. Tours that have visited Hong Kong in the past year are not eligible.

 

 

*Original works must have had their “world premiere” in Hong Kong during the past year. The artists must be based in Hong Kong to be eligible. Any medium is accepted.

 

 

*The defined 2016-2017 season for the purposes of these awards is from July 1st, 2016 to July 30th, 2017. If you have any questions about what shows happened in the past year you can look back at the calendar or can look at the review page.

 

 

*Our voting process is open. The 5 nominees in each category with the largest number of votes will appear on the final ballot. The nominee from the final ballot with the highest number of votes will be the winner of the award.

 

 

*You can see the winners of last year’s awards at this link.

 

 

*You may access open nominations by clicking this link. You may only vote once from your IP address. International votes will be limited to 15% of the voting pool. We've built a web link/voting system that can easily be embedded into our site for nominations.*

 

 

*However, should people abuse the new system with bots, we might have to return to the old way of voting. (Which would suck because it was very inefficient for us...)

*There are no language restrictions on the categories for this year.
