IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities


The IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities are held each year to celebrate the best written and audio-visual works created by students, alumni, faculty and staff that form part of the IE community.

These prizes honour the humanistic vision held by all of the members of our educational community, as well as their critical thinking, and their ability to have a unique voice and vision of reality. The IE Foundation, with the support of the IE Humanities Division that specialises in researching and teaching the humanities, is proud to host these awards to propel this particular vision of the world that is so integral to IE University’s identity.

Each year, the three best works in each category or subcategory are awarded a prize. The prizes, issued by the IE Foundation, consist of a printed edition of all of the winning works of that year, which are also featured digitally along with the winning videos.

Through this web, we would like to inspire and motivate you to participate in the IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities, and invite you to express yourself creatively. We would also like to thank everyone who has participated in previous editions, and all of you who will participate in the following editions, for your generosity in sharing your stories, characters, landscapes and realities with us.
