Amused Moose Comedy Award – £5000 Prize. Open now.Monday, 20 June, 2011
The main prize is £5000, alongside a commercial standard promotional dvd.
All finalists receive a showreel of their performance and a shiny Moose trophy.
Just as important is that everyone reaching the later stages gets loads of exposure, not least because there will be 100+ industry guests at the high profile semi-final and final, including bookers from all the international comedy festivals, plus there’s the possibility of even more if invited to be in an Amused Moose Comedy Awards showcase at the Fringe or London’s Soho Theatre in September.
To enter, as soon as possible upload a recording of your show (filmed at a preview probably – no need for professional quality but it must be possible to see and hear the performance) and email a completed entry form.
All the details are in the links below – the sooner you upload and enter, the greater the number of industry panellists who will have a chance to watch it, but reviews won’t be written on the basis of online viewings.
(Please do not wait to enter until you’re at the Fringe as the preliminary stage concludes then)
The Awards objective is to discover “almost DVD ready” comedians/comedy performers of any type, in shows that are listed in the comedy section of the Edinburgh Fringe programme + website for a full run; therefore anyone with a current dvd deal/funding is ineligible as they’re not undiscovered.
