International Circus Awards Submissions - Circus Events - CircusTalk
Submissions now open!

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.

To attend an info session, sign up at the links below:
May 20th @ 9am ET:
June 10th @ 5pm ET:

Beginning in July of 2021 a committee of more than 30 voting members from 15 different countries will adjudicate up to 200 full-length circus show submissions. The committee will nominate and vote to award achievements in multiple categories including:

In addition, the awards will present two special awards, one for Critics Choice in collaboration with the online social marketplace CircusTalk and an Audience Choice Award chosen by the general public.
