Do you know a high achieving Indiana journalist who should be in the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame?

The hall is accepting nominations for the 2018 awards through Oct. 1, 2017. Inductees will be announced in spring 2018.

The hall of fame was founded in 1966 to recognize those contributions to the field of journalism have earned them a place in Indiana journalism history.

The organization also accepts nominations for its John P. McMeel Distinguished Service Award using the same process. This honors a non-journalist whose efforts have supported journalism and journalists around the state.

The 12 leading nominations are reviewed by the full board of directors along with any supplemental material at a meeting in Indianapolis by late November. The new class of inductees is selected and notified immediately of the plans for the May induction into the hall of fame.
