The Alliance Awards are designed to honor excellence in the arts through a peer-based, South Shore-wide adjudication process.
All TAA Members have the opportunity to be Alliance Awards Adjudicators! All you have to do is attend local arts events, nominate your favorites in the categories below, and vote!
Adjudicators should evaluate each aspect of each production on its own merits based on their training and professional experience.
Ballots are used to evaluate work in real time. At the end of a season the results of each ballot are tabulated and those meeting or surpassing the minimum ballot threshold (5+) will become a finalists in their category for that season.
For categories with multiple candidates sharing a line such as co-directors or musical group, please evaluate the work of the artists collectively.
Evaluations are made on a numeric basis using a range from 1 to 10, with
the median 5 being considered average and acceptable. Please reference
the chart below to give you a sense of what values to assign. Please try
to not evaluate at the high or low extremes unless the situation truly
merits that result.
Once you submit your ballot, your evaluation is recorded to the database and cannot be changed except in extreme cases that must be approved by the program manager.
