I agree to abide by the terms of the IRP program and to produce news stories that will appear on the IRP website and on the websites of IRP donors when appropriate. These stories will be treated as full collaborations by the IRP, the journalist, and the journalist's news organization (where relevant). Any added elements to the story, such as stock photography, may also be used by the IRP. I agree to give credit to the IRP on all stories produced as a result of the fellowship and to treat the IRP as an equal partner in submitting these stories for journalism contests and awards.
