2021 AIPPI Essay Prize

The International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) calls for submissions for the 2021 AIPPI Essay Prize.

The AIPPI Essay Prize was launched last year (as was announced here). The second edition of the competition introduces a video option. Thus, applicants can either write an essay in English or record a video on IP topics.

The 2021 competition topics are the following:

  • Sustainability and its effects on Intellectual Property after COVID-19.
  • Any relevant topic that you think would be interesting for consideration by AIPPI as a study topic in the near future.

There are two prizes, one for AIPPI members and one for IP students. The AIPPI member will receive a complimentary registration (or a refund if already registered) for the 2021 Congress. The IP Student will obtain “a free Join & Register place for the 2021 Congress”.

The winners will receive a certificate and can also record a video to speak about their essays (if applicable). The videos (about the essays or winning videos) will be shown during the AIPPI World Congress to be held online in October 2021. The winning essays or videos will be available on the AIPPI website.

Complete submissions must be sent to publications@aippi.org before 15 September 2021 (5 pm CEST). Recorded entries must be shared via a link (e.g., wetransfer.com).
