The Argus: Argus Angels 2013

The Argus Angel Awards were introduced in 2007 to award artistic excellence during the Brighton Festival and Brighton Festival Fringe. From theatre and dance to music, live literature and exhibitions – The Argus Angels are presented to artists and performers who truly stand out from the crowd.

Back now for their seventh year, The Argus team of critics will be out reviewing events night and day to make sure they don’t miss any performance worthy of a handsome golden statue. Based on the famous Herald Angels of The Edinburgh Festival, the trophies are carved by hand and carefully flown down from Scotland in the suitcase of the sculptor himself.

Kim Protheroe, The Argus features editor, said: "These awards are for the truly exceptional performances and events we see during the festival period.

"These can range from a new performer with obvious talent and potential, to an established act that simply blows you away with their continued innovation and flawless execution. This year, we have awarded four already."

An Angel will also be awarded to the show or performance chosen by the readers' vote.

Audience members can nominate their favourite performance via text and the form below.

If people see an event and want to vote immediately, they can text the word ARGUSANGEL to 80360, followed by their nomination. Twitter-users can also nominate by using the hashtag #argusangel.

The overall winner will be chosen and announced at the end of the festivals.
