Awards include the City of Perth Local Comedy award, the Little Creatures Circus award and the Vinaceous Cabaret award within a pool of nine genre awards, the PerthNow People's Choice Award, awards for best independent venue and program, and the top-tier Martin Sims award.

The Western Power sponsored Martin Sims award will be given to the most promising Western Australian work from the Fringe. The award recipient will receive $10,000 to assist them in touring their work to other national and international Fringe Festivals.
