The IES Chicago Section 2020 Awards will be hosted virtually on September 17, 2020 to keep all of us safe.  With this adaptation the typical sponsorship avenues are not possible.  Instead we have created two new opportunities for sponsorship and recognition in the virtual event:

People’s Choice Video Competition

Theme: What has 2020 meant to your brand, company, or team –  Designed as a humorous focus on how 2020 has changed our lives; we are offering 15 second, pre-recorded video spots created by participating sponsors. These will be played throughout the awards presentation.  Live-polling during the event will result in a People’s Choice prize for the most popular video spot.  The Winner will receive a full-page ad in next year’s IA program.  

By introducing this competition we hope to engage our community in documenting the plus side of the new normal and share personal experiences with each other. Participation is $500/video entry.  Competition details can be found HERE. For those (we hope all of you!) who participate in the People’s Choice Video Competition the videos are due on Aug. 10th

Award Video Production Sponsorship 
The IES Chicago Section Awards Committee is investing in producing interviews of the award recipients for each project.  There are four opportunities to individually sponsor the video production of an award. Participation is $1600 and includes a verbal recognition at the introduction of the project.  This sponsorship will be awarded on a first come first served basis.

To purchase sponsorship click HERE.  Please don’t hesitate to contact the Awards Committee at awards@ieschicago.com with any questions about these two sponsorship opportunities or other questions about the 2020 IA virtual event.
