Nominations for G/C 2017 award are now open!

We are seeking League of Professional Theatre Women members, international affiliates, and national and international cultural and artistic leaders to nominate an outstanding theatre woman working outside the U.S.

The Gilder/Coigney International Theatre Award was established in 2011 in honor of Rosamond Gilder and Martha Coigney, two legendary theatre women whose work on the international stage proved that theatre knows no boundaries. Presented every three years, this award acknowledges the exceptional work of theatre women around the world and aims to make a difference in the life and career of an international woman theatre artist.

The Award includes a cash prize of $1,000 plus travel expenses to New York City for the recipient to be honored. A series of special events surround the award ceremony to showcase the winner’s work, and provide artistic and professional networking opportunities. Once nominees have been submitted for consideration by League members at large, the Committee selects the Awardee based on the following criteria: artistic excellence in the field of theatre; work that has a visible impact in the home country and abroad; the ability to inspire and educate across cultures; clear support of women’s work and issues.
