The Metropolitan Atlanta Theater Awards were founded in 1994 by Russ Ivey to recognize the hard-working actors, directors, designers, and theaters for their contributions to the performing arts in metro Atlanta. Each year the MATs celebrate these hard-working artists with a formal ceremony, presenting awards in 18 different categories of theater work. The MATs are open to community and non-union professional theaters.

The MAT Awards are proud members of the Atlanta Coalition of Performing Arts, Atlanta PlanIt, and is a friend of the Suzi Bass Awards.
