Actually, from what I understand, the AIS Dykes Medal is an award from the British Iris on licence  to AIS. There are other Dykes Medal licences to other nationalities. The original Dykes Medal , is a  British Iris Society award

It says on page 28 in the Handbook for Judges and Show Officials that the Dykes Medal honors William Rickatson Dykes (1877-1925), the English botanist and author of the great monograph The Genus Iris.
It also says that this award is restricted to irises first introduced in the United States or Canada.
Isn't there a slight paradox in banning English registered irises from an award supposed to honor an English botanist?
No, because the American Dykes Medal is just one of a set of Dykes Medals awarded to irises first introduced in different countries.  For example, iris first registered in England were eligible for the Dykes Medal awarded by the British Iris Society.  See:
