2021 OCTG Voter Application

The OCTG Awards are peer based. Actors, directors, designers, playwrights, composers, lyricists, artistic administrators, stage managers, assistant stage managers, journalists, educators and other theatre professionals are the primary Voter profile.

All Voters must apply each season, and acceptance is not guaranteed.

OCTG Awards Committee will review and recommend each season’s panel of Voters for final approval by the full OC Theatre Guild Board. Voter approval is based on their application content and the specific needs of the program, such as geographic coverage, for that year. All Voters must be at least 18 years old.

Voters can fall into these categories:

1. Individual Member Voters - All local artists are welcome to apply to be a Voter. If selected, Voters will be required to join OCTG as an Individual member for the season.

2. Organizational Voters - Each registered organization submitting productions for evaluation must fill two seats in the Voter pool to be split by no more than five Organizational Voters. Aside from the number of productions they must attend, Organizational Voters must meet all requirements of an Individual Voter including application approval by the OC Theatre Guild Board. These representatives are not required to join OC Theatre Guild.

3. Media Voters - Local theatre journalists who have been actively writing about theatre in our community for the last three years or have proof of employment by a major publication are not required to join OC Theatre Guild. However, they must meet all requirements of an Individual Voter including application approval by the OC Theatre Guild Board.
