The AIPPI Essay Prize is intended to encourage the art of essay writing on Intellectual Property and related topics. It was first launched in 2020.
The competition is open to AIPPI members and students of IP and involves writing a 2,500 – 3,000 word essay or filming a video on a certain IP-related topic. The video option is a new inclusion for the 2021 competition. Written or recorded entries will have an equal chance to win.
This year we have two topics on offer, one broad and one narrow. You can choose whichever one appeals to you most.
Two prizes will be awarded. One for AIPPI members and one for IP students. The winners will be given an opportunity to prerecord a video in which they speak about their essay at the AIPPI World Congress Online in October 2021 (or to have their video shown as part of the programme if they are a video winner).
In the case of an IP student, they will receive a free Join & Register place for the 2021 Congress. The existing AIPPI member will win a free online Congress registration (or a refund if they have already registered prior to winning). Both winners will also receive a certificate to mark their achievement.
The winners will be officially announced at the 2021 AIPPI World Congress Online and their essay or video will be published on the AIPPI website, along with social media coverage.
