Remarks from James Nachtwey, the 2006 recipient of the Heinz Award.

The Heinz Awards were created to provide a message of inspiration to each and every one of us regarding the power of the individual in American society.

Established by Teresa Heinz in 1993 to honor the memory of her late husband, U.S. Senator John Heinz, the Awards celebrate the accomplishments and spirit of the Senator by recognizing the extraordinary achievements of individuals in the areas of greatest importance to him.

The Heinz Awards, administered by the Heinz Family Philanthropies, recognize outstanding individuals for their contributions in the areas of: Arts and Humanities, the Environment, the Human Condition, Public Policy, and Technology, the Economy and Employment.

Nominations are submitted by an anonymous Council of Nominators and are reviewed by Jurors appointed by the Heinz Family Philanthropies. Award recipients are ultimately selected by the Board of Directors.

Award recipients receive a medallion and an unrestricted cash prize of up to $250,000.
