The 2019 competition opens on June 1st, and will be open until September 1st.
2018 was the first year!
The IBI Awards are fully independent. This means there are no brand affiliations or sponsors that could set guidelines to influence the judging criteria. And the awards are not use for PR purposes by a tradeshow, school or brand.
This award is about you, the artisans and by charging a small fee, we can keep it that way!
Yes! The highest scoring entrant in each category is an IBI Award winner and will receive the Statuette. However, if Judges feel the quality standards for a category have not been met they may opt to not recognize a winner.
No. We’d love to celebrate with all the international artists and finalists in person but it’s simply not practical or fair to expert entrants to pay to travel from across the globe to an event. This Award is truly international, we want an artist entering in New York to have the same opportunity and experience as those in Australia, Kuwait, Ukraine, Ireland, Nepal or anywhere else in the world!
No! Your work is always your own and you retain ownership of it. By submitting, you can giving permission to IBI to optionally feature or promote your work with your name as part of our mission to celebrate artists!
