The METAs Jury is selected by the METAC, and is comprised of 25 Montreal-based professional theatre artists from varied disciplines, representing the full diversity of our city
(age, gender, ethnicities).

The METAs Jury is responsible for the professional awards’ categories only. A separate Community Jury assesses the Community Theatre Award, and special juries are convened to determine recipients of Honorary Awards.

Members of the METAs Jury may serve for a maximum of 2 consecutive years. Jurors who have completed two years may return to the Jury after a hiatus of at least one year. An invitation to serve a second year is contingent not only on interest and availability, but also the desire to convene a jury with diverse discipline and demographic representation. Every year, the Jury must be comprised of a majority (50 % +1) of new jurors. Therefore, returning to the Jury is never assumed.

If you would like to become a member of the METAs Jury, please send your resume and a letter to outlining the following:

  • Your name and theatre discipline;
  • Your professional training, experience and affiliations;
  • Your involvement in the Montreal English theatre community;
  • Why you would like to be on the METAs Jury.

Recruitment is done in June and July of each year for the following season.
