About our “Ig Glorious” ticket holders

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:

The one on the left is Jim Bredt, who invented the concept of a Human Spotlight and who also is one of the inventors of 3D-printing. The one on the right is Katrina Rosenberg.
