2019 BYOV Application

This application is for performing companies that want to mount a Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) production.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications will be accepted up until March 1, 2019 OR until all spots are filled, whichever occurs first.  (Please note, the Winnipeg Fringe limits the number of BYOV companies it accepts, and this limit is usually reached in January.)

The Winnipeg Fringe will begin to contact applicants after January 8, 2019 to advise you of the status of your application.

Please be aware that BYOVs come with substantial financial risk to the producing company and can involve a considerable amount of work. If you are a first-time applicant to the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, or if you are new to the BYOV process, we highly recommend that you contact us at performers@winnipegfringe.com about your BYOV proposal prior to applying.

The Winnipeg Fringe Festival will determine a quota for the number of BYOV performance slots in the festival. All BYOV venues must have at least two companies sharing a venue and a maximum of four (with the exception for site-specific BYOVs) .

Priority will be given to projects that are deemed truly site specific.

The Fringe reserves the right to decline any BYOV application based on a number of factors including but not limited to the type/location/safety of the proposed venue.

Once a BYOV application is accepted into the festival, payment of the BYOV application fee ($750.00 incl. GST) must be made within 7 days.
