Who are the IP industry’s icons? Help us to choose this year’s IP Hall of Fame inductees
WTR's sister platform IAM has this week launched its annual search to identify outstanding individuals to induct into the IP Hall of Fame. As always, we need your nominations as part of the selection process. Please let us know who you believe deserves recognition by completing our (very short) nomination form before 14 April.
Since 2006, the IP Hall of Fame has been honouring those individuals – living or dead – who have had a major positive impact on the IP landscape, whether as a lawyer, academic, business executive, inventor, politician, or in any other capacity. A list of the luminaries who have already been included can be found here.
If you know of somebody who deserves recognition for their ground-breaking contributions to the IP field, please nominate them here. Self-nominations and those deemed by the editorial team to be for promotional purposes will not be considered.
Once the nominations process comes to an end on 14 April, all valid nominations will be sent (anonymously) to the IP Hall of Fame Academy, whose members – composed of past inductees and celebrated IP thought-leaders – will vote on which of the nominees to induct this year.
On top of this, we have an additional place in the IP Hall of Fame to the recipient of the 2023 Q. Todd Dickinson Editor’s Award, which honours one individual each year who has made an outstanding contribution to IP’s development as a business asset. The recipient of this award will also be chosen by the IP Hall of Fame Academy, from a shortlist determined by the IAM editorial team.
This year’s inductees will be announced in late-April.
We look forward to receiving your nominations.
