Shift Drinks Comedy announces the fifth annual, All The Laughs (ATL) Comedy Awards. This event is to recognize comedic creators from around the globe and to come together to celebrate community, collaboration, and of course comedy! Under the backdrop of the thriving Atlanta (ATL) comedy scene over three days we will be showcasing the very talented and hard-working comedians from across the globe. Can't make it in person, no worries, we will also simulcast a portion of the festival through our virtual theatre platform, Sparq, so there's no need for traveling or pants. So if you're there in person or online, you'll enjoy screening parties to include the works from all the nominees, industry panels, live comedy, and culminating with an awards presentation, with special guests, all to celebrate; community, collaboration, and comedy!

Everyone deserves a shot, only a few will win The Golden Pitcher!

The nominees in each category will receive a festival laurel, as well as be showcased during the three day event. The winner in each category will receive a laurel, a certificate, and the personal engraved coveted Golden Pitcher. This statuette is crafted by Society Awards, the world’s most prestigious designer and manufacturer of custom awards. Society Awards has designed and crafted many of the world’s top awards including the Emmys®, Clio Statuette, MTV’s VMA Moon Person, Academy of Country Music Awards, and the American Music Awards.

Laughter is universal, but unfortunately language is not, any foreign submissions must have English subtitles. Thank you.

By submitting to the ATL Comedy Awards, you the submitter, understand that your submission, if selected, will be publicly displayed, broadcast, digitally transmitted during the hybrid event. Also stills/posters and/or short clips may be used to promote All The Laughs events worldwide.

In order to get you and your work the most exposure as possible, the judges may only choose to use a portion of your submission for festival programming and/or nominate a specific portion of the larger submission as a stand alone for nomination in an additional category consideration. You can of course decline this request and decline your nomination if you so choose.

The submission fee does not include an event ticket. All nominees and their teams receive 75% off all-access and day passes, while those who are not selected still receive a 25% discount for the 3-day festival. Any live performances are on a volunteer basis.
