The Ridenhour Prizes comprise awards in four categories given annually in recognition of those "who persevere in acts of truth-telling that protect the public interest, promote social justice or illuminate a more just vision of society". The awards are presented by The Nation Institute and The Fertel Foundation in recognition of Ron Ridenhour, the Vietnam War veteran who exposed the My Lai Massacre. Each Prize carries a $10,000 stipend. The Prizes were first awarded in 2004.

Prize categories include:

  • The Ridenhour Courage Prize
  • The Ridenhour Book Prize
  • The Ridenhour Truth-Telling Prize
  • The Ridenhour Documentary Film Prize (since 2011)
