New (and improved) deadline for the Paula Awards!

We are happy to announce that applications for the 2015-2016 Paula Awards will be forwarded in January with the deadline of March 31st.

These awards began in 2001 to honour Paula Butterfield whose generosity to Prologue enabled us to set up an endowment fund. The interest from the fund is used each year to provide small grants to Prologue artists for the final development of a new work for young audiences which is then considered for Prologue’s roster.  (Read this post for some history about the Paula Awards.)

We used to announce the Paula's recipients at our Celebration party in December, which did not leave the recipients enough time to complete their new work for the following school year. The successful artists/companies for this year’s Paula Awards will be announced at our Year End Celebration on June 20, 2016, for consideration for the 2017-2018 program. 

Last year’s recipients were Kahurangi Moari Dance, Marla Brennan and Shoestring Opera.
