The Iris family extends around the world. Each and every event, festival and outreach project in the busy schedule represents a chance to expand that Iris family even further.

It would be nice to think that all of this happens by magic, with the wave of the Iris wand or a sprinkle of Iris dust. However, as with most things in life something as big as the Iris Prize Festival needs a lot of attention. The Iris family includes staff, patrons and friends – all committed and enthusiastic individuals, as well as our sponsors, without whom there would be no Iris at all.
