2012 Groundlings – and the award goes to …

14 February, 2013 by No Comments

Congratulations to all of the winners of The 2012 Groundlings, Queensland’s only peoples’ choice award for the best of Queensland-made theatre.

Thanks as well to all who nominated and voted. You are helping to keep the conversation and the spirit alive! Heartiest thanks to you.

It was clear from the nominations and the voting process that fan bases for particular artists and their work are very strong. There were some instances of multiple nominations and ballot stuffing during the voting. Our automated process picked these up and they were disqualified.

Greenroom is very grateful to Claire Christian, Director of Empire Youth Arts who performed the scrutineering task for the final ballot with such aplomb!
