Voter applications are now available for the 2016/2017 Ovation Awards season.
Approximately 250 Ovation voters are responsible for attending and scoring Ovation-registered productions. Their scores determine Ovation nominees and recipients.
Ovation voters consist of LA-based theatre artists who have worked professionally in the theatre for at least five years (and, specifically, have extensive experience working professionally in LA theatre). They are selected through an annual application process that is facilitated by the Ovation Rules Committee. This process examines the applicant’s participation in the Greater Los Angeles theatre community, including attendance habits and professional resume.
