Help us to choose this year’s IP Hall of Fame inductees

IAM has now begun its annual search to identify outstanding individuals to induct into the IP Hall of Fame. And, as always, we need your nominations as part of the selection process. Please let us know who you believe deserves recognition by completing the (very short) nomination form before 7 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 IAM editorial team to be for promotional purposes will not be considered.

Once the nominations process comes to an end on 7 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.

An additional place in the IP Hall of Fame will go to the recipient of the 2022 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 and will be honoured at IPBC Global, Chicago, in June.

We look forward to receiving your nominations.
