The audiences who come to Sanders Theater to watch the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony include scientists, science enthusiasts, and people who have no connection to science. Some of them come individually, some of them come in groups (self-organized Official Audience Delegations). And then there are the very special “Ig Glorious” ticket holders.
“Ig Glorious” tickets are a way for a few of our audience members to be especially (and financially) supportive of the Igs. They sit in excellent locations and enjoy access to the “Ig Glorious Liaison”, a glorious person who assists them in small, glorious ways throughout the evening. Ig Glorious ticket holders receive a few other perks as well, such as a gift bag that holds: (1) an Ig Nobel poster signed by at least one of the new winners; and (2) other inconsequential items.
And immediately after the ceremony officially concludes, they can pose for a photo on the Ig Nobel stage with one of the Human Spotlights! Here’s what that looks like:
