In the vein of the Tony Awards® and the Academy Awards® comes the International Circus Awards, the first time in circus history that companies, artists, and circus producers from around the globe will have their shows recognized for their outstanding achievements.
The International Circus Awards celebrates extraordinary achievements within the global circus community by honoring the artists engaged in creating, performing, directing, and designing circus shows. Adjudication of each award is grounded in three guiding principles:
The show demonstrates an innovative, challenging, new, or experimental approach.
The show makes a meaningful contribution to the field by expanding knowledge; acting as a catalyst for future inquiry; raising awareness of an understudied issue; or promoting diversity in subject matter, participants, or audiences.
The show exhibits an exceptional caliber and quality of execution within an award category.
