In 2022, IRE established the Ring of Honor, a new initiative celebrating members who have made a significant contribution to the organization and to investigative journalism.
Nominations to the Ring of Honor can be made in tribute to current or retired IRE members or in memoriam to deceased members.
It’s a great way for a group of people to thank a friend or colleague for their service while also paying it forward by raising money to help others.
To nominate someone, fill out the form linked below. If a group of people are nominating, name one person to coordinate the nomination process.
The nomination requires approval of the IRE Board of Directors.
If approved, the nominating person or group has two years from the date of board approval to raise a minimum of $2,500 in the name of the person to be honored. Once that minimum is reached, the person’s name will be added to the Ring of Honor and the honorees will be announced at the next IRE conference.
The money raised will go into a fund for fellowships that will allow qualified recipients to access IRE benefits, such as attending conferences, participating in training and networking with other investigative journalists.
If you have questions not addressed here, please contact IRE Director of Partnerships Anna Lopez.
