The Funny Women Awards have been going since 2003, and we are very proud to have created this leading platform for so many talented performers, writers, creators and short film makers. Whether you’re a stand-up, sketch group, script writer or creating funny content to perform live or on film, we’re here to celebrate and promote your talent. We aim to put you in front of the right people to progress your comedy career and provide mentorship and support.
As we ran the 2017/18 Funny Women Awards with very little funding or sponsorship, we have taken a year out to explore new associations and relationships. We have some exciting plans for the 2019 Awards as we recognise that they are the ‘beating heart’ of Funny Women, encouraging women to have a stronger, funnier voice across media, business and beyond.
We will be announcing these plans at the end of March, beginning of April 2019.
In the meantime we are continuing our collaboration with some leading venues and festivals including the Women in Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as running Time of the Month (our regular mix of networking, playtime and ‘open mic’), workshops and specialist events in Ireland, Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, London and even Amsterdam.
In case you need reminding, we also run the Comedy Shorts and Comedy Writing Awards for those of you who want to interpret your skills through film or script, and we select the winner for the Best Show Award by public nomination. So, start planning ahead for 2019 now! We had a record number of entries in our 2017/2018 Awards and it would be great to see even more of you next time around.
