Show Entry Information

For information on the Judging Criteria and category eligibility, please read the following document:

View the current Judging Criteria…

Step 1 – NAPTA Membership

If you are already part of NAPTA (by having a show judged previously) go ahead to Step 2.

If you have not had a show judged by NAPTA before, please contact us at for further information.
Note that all participating groups need to be members of MTNZ.

Step 2 – Show Calendar

The MTNZ Zone One / NAPTA calendar is a record of all shows happening within the MTNZ Zone One Area.

All shows, even those not for NAPTA Judging are included. It is separate to the MTNZ Website Calendar and both need to be updated. (hopefully these will have an integration soon)

In the event that a show has not been submitted to the calendar at the beginning of the year, it can be added to the Judging schedule at any point at the discretion of the NAPTA Trust and Convenor considering panel availability.

Any questions and updates can be sent to

Step 3 – Show Entry Form

Each show must complete an online Show Entry Form. This is essentially a digital representation of
the production programme to aid in the judging process so names are recorded accurately. The
form also notes any exclusions and confirms performers as being in cameo / supporting / leading
categories. Please note that all cast and crew involved are eligible (subject to the notes on page 2 of the Judging Criteria document linked at the top of this page).

Feel free to complete this when it suits during pre-production, but it must be completed TWO
WEEKS BEFORE opening night at the latest in order to be eligible for Judging.

Any questions and updates can be sent to

Note: please ensure your production is loaded into the calendar (step 2 above) prior to filling in this form. Also note that productions added once the year begins will only be judged at the discretion of NAPTA as noted under step 2.
