We are going to present two additional major awards in 2020 (you need not apply for them; we will select from your entries that have already been submitted)

Best in Show

Represents the best single entry in each budget category.

Grand Summit

The Grand Summit is the highest award given by WFEA in recognition of those Festival and Events who have a balance of all the elements necessary to ensure a successful event.

Award winners in each budget category will be selected based on the overall excellence of a festival and event as presented in their entries in all the other Summit Award categories.

Organizations must submit at least three entries in each of three categories in order to be eligible

1. Collateral/printed materials

2. Marketing

3. Programming

Budget Categories

Events of all sizes are encouraged to submit entries. You will be judged among your peers in the same event budget category so you are competing with festivals with similar budgets. There are three event budget categories:

  • $149,999 and under
  • $150,000 and over

Please submit each entry in one of these event budget categories. Budgets should include the entire budget for the event that you are entering, including all in-kind services.

All entries must be received prior to February 28th, 2020.
