The 33rd First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony will happen on Thursday, September 14, 2023, at 6:00 pm (US eastern time). The 2023 ceremony will happen entirely as a webcast, not in a theatre.
A New, Additional Event One Month After the Ceremony: there will be a new, companion event called Ig Nobel Face-to-Face. The new Ig Nobel Prize winners and other researchers will ask each other questions about their work. (There will also be music and paper airplanes and other good stuff.) This new event will happen in the new MIT Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, on Saturday evening, November 11, 2023.
This will be something of a joyous homecoming for us. The very first Ig Nobel Prize ceremony was held in the MIT Museum (in their old building) in 1991. TICKETS will go on sale soon at the Museum’s web site. (This event will NOT be webcast live. An edited recording will be webcast later in the year.)
As per tradition, the ceremony is funded on a shoestring. If you or your organization would like to help, please donate to the Ig.
