FAST FACTS about the Outstanding SM and Technician Awards:
- Contrary to popular belief, these awards are NOT a one-time honour! Actors, Directors, and everyone else is eligible to win a Merritt for every show they work on, and SM and techs are no exception.
- Anyone who worked on a professional TNS member production is eligible to submit a nomination. It does not need to come from the Producer/Producing Company. Directors, ASMs, fellow technicians, crew members, cast members, and even administrators can write and submit nominations.
- The production for which the SM/Tech is being recognized needs to have been produced by a professional TNS member company in good standing during the 2019 calendar year. Not sure if the show is eligible? Email TNS and ask!
