The current patrons of the association are Rachel Griffiths and David Atkins. Previous winners include Dale Ferguson, David Hersey, Stephen Baynes, Eddie Perfect, Laurie Cadevida, Stephen Daldry, Genevieve Lemon, Michael Dameski, and Julian Gavin.[2]

The 2011 awards were announced on 21 February 2012 (Theatre Day in Melbourne)[3] and will be presented in the Playhouse Arts Centre in Melbourne on 18 March. The Malthouse Theatre has, with 28, the most nominations.[4]
