A bit like the BAFTAs

15 May 2015, 3.30 pm

Yay!  We are plotting to do some annual CIPA awards!  They will be just like the BAFTAs, only possibly a tiny bit less glamorous, and there will be a special awards ceremony at the Congress dinner to stop people falling asleep over their profiteroles.  I imagine we will have trophies and things too, although if the Presidential swimming-gala medal and the CIPA tie pin are anything to go by, I am not going to get too excited about that. 

What I am, however, excited about is the idea of giving someone an award for being a Good Sort in the IP world.  What will the categories be?  Most accurately-punctuated document?  Longest main claim?  Rudest response to an examination report?  Rudest response to a trainee?  Or perhaps: most amount of money (this is the way Lord Sugar talks so it must be alright) in a client account, or most alternative Alternative Business Structure.

Obviously there will be a President’s Award.  This year it will be for the best cakes and biscuits.  Institute members are invited to send their submissions to CIPA whenever they wish; judging will take place throughout the Presidential year.
