There are so many ways our members can get involved—right now.

Across Europe and the Mediterranean basin: We are delighted to announce the 2024 Piazza Grande Religion Journalism Award. For the third year, the IARJ is sponsoring a contest to find the best religion reporting in Europe and the countries surrounding the Mediterranean. 

Check out the announcement and watch for video interviews with last year’s winners. It’s amazing to see the diversity and depth of religion coverage.

And for our journalistic colleagues around the world: Consider these invitations and contact us, please:

  • We are planning short video interviews with journalists who cover religion and scholars who write about it.
  • As often as we can, we write short profiles of our members and provide important opportunities for any interested reporters.
  • We also post excellent examples of reporting on religion from members and from other sources.
  • We like to add recommendations of valuable resources that could help other journalists around the world.
  • And, we hope to publish tips on how to cover religion in various countries of the world.

The more people who are engaged with us, the better.

If you would like to participate in any of these activities, just reach out to me at or
