The IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities


The IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities aim to recognize, on an annual basis, the best written and audiovisual work carried out by IE students and alumni.

A humanistic vision is one of the key aspects of the IE mindset and that of our entire community, the capacity to have another voice and another way of looking at things, of seeing and articulating possible new meanings.IE Humanities Center, which specializes in research and teaching in the field of the humanities, has created these prizes in collaboration with IE Foundation, to enable this voice and this other vision, the vision of the humanities, to be expressed by its students and appreciated by us all.

Each year a prize will be awarded for the three best pieces of work in each category or subcategory. The prizes, awarded by IE Foundation, consist of a print edition of the winning entries, which will be featured on the website, together with the winning videos.
