Each year, IP Osgoode awards prizes for contributions to our website by students of Osgoode Hall Law School. These Prizes are generously sponsored by the law firm of Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP. All blogs submitted by Osgoode students (except IPilogue editors), that are published on the website, are also eligible to be considered for the Gowlings Prize. The Gowlings prize is a series of four prizes that are awarded at the end of the year. At the end of each semester, the author of the best blog is awarded a $500 cash prize, as well as a notation on their official Osgoode Transcript. Award recipients are also announced at convocation.
There is also an award for the best comment made on a blog on the IP Osgoode Website each semester. Blogs can be found at www.iposgoode.ca. Commenting on blogs is a great way to keep up to date on relevant IP and Tech issues and join the discussion with the rest of the IP Osgoode community.
Anyone wishing to be considered for the Gowlings Prize must submit their blog or comment, and be published on the IP Osgoode website, by the last day of classes (Thursday April 5, 2012). Blogs must be Approx. 750 words and of publishable quality (i.e. no spelling/grammatical errors). It is recommended that blogs cite sources in the form of embedded hyperlinks, where appropriate.
Blogs can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments can be made directly on the website. All topics related to IP or Technology law are welcome. For more information on the Gowlings Prize, as well as a list of past winners, please visit http://www.iposgoode.ca/gowlings-ipilogue-prize/
