Award amount: $2,000

The Jon Kaplan Fund Awards will offer support and encouragement to theatre artists of merit and need. There is no “best” associated with these Awards, and the adjudicating committees will be focussed on selecting the most appropriate recipients based on these criteria.

Submission Guidelines:

Who are you?

  • You are an individual Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident, between 20 and 30 years old.
  • You write plays and/or books for musicals.
  • You have had work produced by a professional company, or work that has been selected to be part of a curated theatre festival (such as, but not limited to, Toronto’s SummerWorks, or Vancouver’s PuSH), or have had more than two works presented at a non-curated theatre festival.
