Puffin/Nation Prize For Creative Citizenship
The Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship is an American award citation given jointly by the Nation Institute (a nonprofit media center with ties to The Nation magazine) and the Puffin Foundation. The annual $100,000 award honors artists and others for "socially responsible work" and challenges to authority. The prize is intended to "encourage the recipients to continue their work, and to inspire others to challenge the prevailing orthodoxies they face in their careers." The inaugural award was in 2001.
