Nominations are now being accepted for the second annual BroadwayWorld Chicago Awards! Click here to submit the names of the artists, shows and theaters that you feel should be nominated for this year's awards, the Chicago area's only comprehensive fan awards for local and touring theatrical productions.
You can submit entries until October 31, 2011 after which the entry process will end. The final slate of nominees will be announced shortly thereafter, with online voting to take place November through mid-December.
Winners will be announced before Christmas, and a celebration will take place before New Year's, on Wednesday evening, December 28, 2011 at The Call nightclub, 1547 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood.
Mark your calendars now. Last year's awards celebration at The Call was a warm and special event--you won't want to miss this year's version!
Eligibility is for productions which opened (or will open) between September 1, 2010 and October 31, 2011. (Please note that this is a 14-month eligibility window.) Competition is likely to be fierce!
Nominations and awards are in the same 25 categories as in 2010. As a reminder, here is a complete list of the 2010 winners. Will the same artists and theaters be nominated for their work this year? They might be, if you submit their names now!
