An award is a thing given as a token of excellence in a field. There are several awards established in the world — some that are extremely popular and prestigious, and others that are prestigious and yet limited to specific regions and fields, and unknown to a wider population. The Nobel Prize, considered the most prestigious award in the world, and awarded as a recognition for the greatest contribution to mankind, the Grammy Award given out to honour excellence in the music industry, the Pulitzer Prize that celebrates literary achievements, the Padma Awards given to honour Indians and friends of India for their contributions to the country and its culture, the Sahithya Akademi Awards that celebrate literary achievements in Indian languages, and so many more are all covered here.
