Call for entries: 2020 IRE Awards

It’s time to gather your best stories of the year! The 2020 IRE Awards contest is now open for submissions, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve done.

You’ll notice our new contest submission platform, which we hope will be easy and straightforward to use. The platform, powered by OpenWater, will allow you to start, save and come back to your entries at any point during the open call. You will need to set up a login and password through the platform, but it does not have to be the same information as your IRE membership. 

As with any new system, we might need to tweak some things as we move forward. Please check out the new contest submission platform and email questions to Director of Programming and Resources Lauren Grandestaff at or Contest Committee chair Jennifer LaFleur at

Eligible entries must have been published or aired between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2020. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 12, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
