As you may have already guessed the board and the activist group in Cologne of the iGDN, after long discussions, decided: this year’s edition of the iphi award must be postponded.
At the moment, we are not able to foresee whether it will be possible to hold the award ceremony in the usual way. Furthermore, we think that a digital version would not be an adequate replacement because both the award ceremony and the supporting programme are very much defined by coming together, exchanging thoughts and ideas and sharing a great night.
We do, however, continue to collect entries through our website, iphi-award.org, and from our Research Committee international (RCi). The next jury session is also postponed and will take place in spring 2021. The jury will consider all entries from this year and from 2021.
We are confident that we will be able to have a great, cheerful and glamorous award ceremony again in the autumn of 2021.
We wish you all the very best, and let’s stay in „touch” (strange word meanwhile).
