2019 Annual Gala

About the Gala

Every year Type Media Center hosts a gala where we award the Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship, an annual $100,000 award given to an individual who has challenged the status quo through courageous, distinctive, and socially responsible work. The prize is intended to encourage the recipients to continue their work, and previous winners have included Colin Kaepernick, Amy Goodman, and the Parkland students who founded March for Our Lives.

This year’s gala will be held on December 10th, 2019 at the IAC building in New York City.

For sponsorships or inquiries, please contact JKS Events by phone (212.725.2948) or email (gala@typemediacenter.org).
