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.[1] The annual $100,000 award honors artists and others for “socially responsible work” and challenges to authority.[2] 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."[1] The inaugural award was in 2001.[2]
