Donating Prizes

Prizes have always been a fun part of IF events. Rather than give numerical rankings and tiered prizes, we like to do something different: gather interesting, useful, quirky, or funny prizes into a general pool. When the festival closes, authors will get to select a prize from the pool in random order until authors or prizes run out. Winning a ribbon does not change selection order or your chance of getting a prize.

The prizes donated so far for the 2017 festival are:

If you're interested in donating a prize, please contact the organizer.

Need ideas for prizes? Check out the non-cash prize list for past (such as ‘16 or ‘14) or current or past IF Comp prize lists. Prizes with a personal or homemade touch are especially welcome.

Keep in mind that part of your prize donation, if it's a physical item, is the cost of shipping it to the recipient, who may be from a different country than you. The festival organizer may be able to help subsidize shipping if you have a cool prize idea but can't afford to ship it. Delivery of prizes won't happen until after the festival closes in May.
