The Nation Institute and the Fertel Foundation are now accepting nominations for the 2013 Ridenhour Prizes. The nomination forms for the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling, the Ridenhour Book Prize, and the Ridenhour Documentary Film Prize, can all be downloaded on the Ridenhour website.
The deadline is December 1, 2012.
The Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling is presented to a citizen, corporate or government whistleblower, investigative journalist, or organization for bringing a specific issue of social importance to the public's attention.
The Ridenhour Book Prize honors an outstanding work of social significance from the prior publishing year. The prize also recognizes investigative and reportorial distinction.
The Ridenhour Documentary Film Prize is given to a documentary film that in the view of the judges best reflects the legacy of Ron Ridenhour–journalist, whistleblower, truth-teller and social activist. The Prize seeks to recognize a documentary that defends the public interest, advances or promotes social justice, or illuminates a more just vision of society.
