Nominations for the 2023 International Opera Awards are now open via our website:

Nominations will remain open until 17:00 (UK time) on Sep 1, 2023.

As ever, nominations are warmly encouraged both from the industry and the general public. 

A reminder that nominations now cover the preceding opera season i.e. Sep 1 2022 – Aug 31 2023 rather than the calendar year. Please ensure your nominations are for achievements during this period.

We encourage companies and artist management agencies to spread the word about nominations on social media and encourage fans to nominate: the more the merrier. 

Individuals and companies are welcome to nominate either their own achievements or those of others: all nominations will be anonymised when considered by the jury.

If you have any questions about the process, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

NB: To keep the process as streamlined as possible, no further information is required beyond what is asked for on the online form ( Our team will review and research every nomination and contact the relevant organisation/individual if anything more is required.
