Matilda Awards

Monday 20th Feb 2017

The Matilda Awards are a not-for-profit organisation that honour and celebrate the achievements of the Queensland theatre Industry.

Report from Elise Greig, Chair of the Judging Panel

Well, time flies when you’re having fun and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing at the Matilda Awards.  Flying.  No, having fun seeing loads and loads of theatre…

As mentioned during our first newsletter back in May, an important element of the role of Lead Judge is to maintain clear and open communication with the theatre industry.  We’ve been doing this through targeted conversations and correspondence; by reaching out to groups who might have overlooked, or not known, they could register their show and by seeking feedback that we then unpack during our meetings.  This newsletter is another way in which we aim to ensure those channels are open and flowing by keeping our industry in the loop about what’s been happening during Judging Committee and Executive meetings.

An important element of the role of Lead Judge is to maintain clear and open communication with the theatre industry.  Therefore, on behalf of the Matilda Judging committee, I would like to introduce you to the Matilda Newsletter.  This newsletter will be distributed every few months and will aim to keep members of the Queensland theatre community and other interested parties in the loop regarding what’s been happening during Judging Committee and Executive meetings….
