The section for theatre, music and dance gives out Norwegian Critics' Awards within theatre, dance and music. The art and literature critics of Norwegian Critics' Association also give out awards within their fields.

Olav Dalgard's critic award goes every other year to a literature critic, and every fourth year to a theatre or film critic.
