*Note: Cash prizes are not cumulative. Only one cash prize can be awarded to each winner with the highest available prize applied.

For example, if a winner is awarded both LIT of the Year and Category Winner of the Year, they will only receive the $2,000 cash prize from the LIT of the Year and not $100 from winning the latter. First placed Category Winners can only receive one $100 cash prize, even if they win the title in multiple programs.

If you submitted your entries through an award agent and won either LIT of the Year or Category Winner of the Year, IAA will proceed to issue the cash prize to the closest representative of the winning entry, the award agent, to collect it on your behalf. Please liaise with your award agent on the matter of cash prizes. Cash prizes will be issued either to the winners or award agent within a month after the announcement of results.
