We established the International Quizzing Association (IQA) to bring quizzers together from around the world in high quality quizzes, and to help create and support national quiz organisations.

Our mission is to bring the World Quizzing Championships to television and to have quiz recognised as a mind sport. We want to actively encourage people to want to know about the world around them.

The IQA is run by five quiz enthusiasts who represent different parts of the world:

Jane Allen, Managing Director: [email protected]
Steven De Ceuster, Director, Western Europe: [email protected]
Dr Anurakshat Gupta, Director, Asia: [email protected]
Chris Jones, Director, Global: [email protected]
Arko Olesk, Director, Eastern Europe: [email protected]

The IQA Directors are supported by three Associate Directors:

Abel Gilsing, Netherlands: [email protected]
Hitomi Kondo, Japan: [email protected]
Lee-Ann Whitlock, North America: [email protected]

The World Quizzing Championships are the result of a worldwide cooperation that includes representatives in each of the participating countries.

The questions for this event are set by the IQA Directors along with:

Leslie Elman, USA
Ina Rosenaitė, Lithuania

We run a number of high quality international competitions, including:

World Quizzing Championships – annual global quiz contest taking place in venues all over the world
Quiz Olympiad – global competition across a weekend in a single location every four years
Ultimate Quizzing Championships – annual contest in a single location taking place over a weekend
Hot 100 – monthly global quiz contest taking place in venues all over the world for rankings points

Thank you for supporting us and for taking part in our events. We really hope you enjoy them!
