The IIG $100,000 Challenge

Can you demonstrate paranormal ability?
Are you interested in earning $100,000 dollars?

The Independent Investigations Group (IIG) at the Center for Inquiry-Los Angeles offers a $100,000 prize to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event. The IIG works with the applicant in designing the test protocol, and defining the conditions under which a test will take place. IIG representatives will then administer the actual test. In most cases, the applicant will be asked to perform an informal demonstration of the claimed ability or phenomenon, which if successful will be followed by the formal test. The IIG conducts all demonstrations and tests at our site in Hollywood, California or at one of our affiliates, except in special circumstances.


For more information on the IIG $100,000 Challenge please see the Terms and Conditions. Use the form below to contact us for further details or to arrange for testing!

$100,000 for you and $5,000 more for the person who finds you!

If you pass the IIG Challenge, we'll pay you $100,000 ourselves and release the results publicly, which will raise your profile immensely among those who doubt your claims. The true skeptics will have to take notice!

The person who refers the claimant who wins the IIG $100,000 Challenge will receive $5,000 for introducing us to a winning claimant. Spread the word - even those without special powers can be $5,000 richer.
