Perth's first full Fringe festival wraps up this week and will celebrate with the inaugural Fringe World Awards at the Bakery on Sunday February 19.

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.

The Awards will be hosted by Steve Gove – FRINGE WORLD's European Correspondent and Founder / Director of Prague Fringe.
