We started presenting the ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards in August 2005. They go to the ten performers, shows or companies that the ThreeWeeks editors feel have made any one year’s festival extra special and are presented at a small gathering on the final weekend of the Festival.

There are no specific categories, with most genres represented among the winners each year. Some awards go to performers or companies who have consistently impressed the ThreeWeeks review team over a number of years. Others go to shows or projects that particularly stood out that year.

Details of the winners – and why they were chosen – are published online at the end of each Festival. You can read about past winners below. The ThreeWeeks Editors Awards will return in August 2023.
