IV Prize Awards ‘Interesting’ Diverse Individuals – Nominate Someone Today

Now in its second year, the IV Prize recognizes an individual in Metro Vancouver doing or pursuing something interesting with a one-of-a-kind award and cash prize. The IV Prize casts a wide net for nominations from artists, athletes, adventurers exploring new areas to rocket scientists, designers, and doctors doing things in unexpected ways. The candidates we’re looking for embody the word ‘interesting’ to its full potential. The winner of the IV Prize will be announced at the ninth annual Interesting Vancouver event, happening November 10th.

“We’re so proud of what Interesting Vancouver has become over the past eight years. Over the years, IV has evolved into a social impact initiative, building connections and engagement in our community, city, and economy.” –Mark Busse & Brett MacFarlane, Interesting Vancouver

Starting in fall 2016, Interesting Vancouver welcomes Khelsilem, an indigenous educator and community leader from the Squamish Peoples and IV14 alumni, as an advisor to assist IV in its goal to support the indigenous voice within our community.

“For a long time, indigenous voices from Vancouver were hushed but things are changing because we’re changing it. I’m proud to assist Interesting Vancouver in being a part of that change.” –Khelsilem, indigenous educator and Squamish Peoples’ community leader
