The Siminovitch Prize rotates on a three-year cycle, honouring theatre professionals in the alternating fields of design, direction, or playwriting.

Last year's award went to director Nadia Ross, while protegee prizes went to Sarah Conn and Shaista Latif. Past winners of the playwrighting prize include Olivier Choiniere, Daniel MacIvor and Carole Frechette.

This year's winner will be announced Nov. 6 in Ottawa.
