The Nation Institute


A non-profit media center, The Nation Institute is dedicated to strengthening the independent press and advancing social justice and civil rights. Our programs include a bestselling book publishing imprint, our award-winning Investigative Fund that supports groundbreaking investigative journalism, the TomDispatch, our internship program and Journalism Fellowships that fund up 26 high-profile reporters every year.

Involvement in film

We deliver The Ridenhour Prizes, which includes a $10,000 documentary film prize. We solicit the nominations, create the shortlist and help to decide on the winning film. We then work with the winners on their press and outreach strategy and honor their achievement at a 450-person luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
