 IE Foundation has announced the winners of the 2018 edition of its Prizes in the Humanities in the categories of poetry, short story and short essay in Spanish and English, video, and photography. IE students and graduates presented over 800 entries for this year’s competition, while the judges’ panel included international players like Indian author Namita Gokhale, and journalist Tom Burns. The prizes will be presented in a ceremony set to take place later this year in October.

The IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities are awarded in recognition of the humanist vision of IE students and graduates, along with their capacity for critical thought and their ability to have another voice and way of seeing realities. IE Humanities Center, which specializes in research and teaching practice in the field of the humanities, runs the competition to help foster the kind of vision of the world brought by the humanities, which form a key part of IE’s identity.

“We firmly believe that the humanities stretch the limits of our mind.  Poetry, music, painting history, philosophy, and the arts in general make us better people, as well as making us happier. They give us another viewpoint with which to see challenges and take decisions, and bring a perspective that only the humanist vision can provide,” says Victoria Gimeno, Director of the IE Prizes in the Humanities. “This year, the number of participants has increased by 200%, and the number of entries has grown by 150%. We want to extend our thanks to everyone who sent in videos, photographs, stories, essays and poems that transported us into different realities and enabled us to see things in a different way.  Knowing as we do that our community has so much talent and such a capacity to inspire, we would encourage all our students and alumni to take part in the upcoming edition of the IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities.”

Carlos Mas, Vice President of IE Foundation, talked about how the humanities, together with an immersion in technology, diversity and an entrepreneurial approach, form an integral part of IE’s identity. “Here at IE Foundation we strive to strengthen these values. We are delighted to lend our support to the Prizes in the Humanities, and award recognition to our students and alumni for their literary and audiovisual work.”
