Patrons

The Arctic Inspiration Prize is honoured to have support from Patrons. Patrons actively promote the Prize and the Laureates and might help celebrate the winning teams or finalists in and around their regions in the North. Patrons also provide valuable insight and advice and help connect AIP Trustees and staff in their respective areas or regions. Unlike Ambassadors, Patrons are impartial and neutral supporters of the Prize, therefore do not nominate specific teams.
