The Leslie M. Frost Award is presented for Best Production in the Spring Full Length Play Festival. The award, entitled Labyrinth, is a wall constructed in plexiglass designed by Ottawa artist Florrie Pollock. From 1933 to 1952, it was The Dominion Drama Festival (the DDF). EODL came into being in 1953. Until the fall of 1961, one act plays were part of the Spring Play Festival.
