Funding Opportunity

John Fernald Award

The aim is to offer funding or part-funding to two successful applicants in directing a play or site-specific event.

The John Fernald Award was set up in 1988 in honour of the late Theatre Director and RADA Principal John Fernald, with the aim of funding or part-funding a maximum of two successful applicants in directing a play or site-specific event. A total of £5,000 is distributed annually.

This award is for theatre makers and directors from the UK or Republic of Ireland with some professional experience in the field.

Professional theatres may also apply on behalf of a director they wish to hire.
