The Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, one of the largest awards in the arts, is awarded annually to "a man or woman who has made an outstanding contribution to the beauty of the world and to mankind’s enjoyment and understanding of life," as Lillian Gish requested in her will. 

"It is my desire, by establishing this prize, to give recipients of the prize the recognition they deserve, to bring attention to their contributions to society and encourage others to follow in their path," wrote Lillian Gish, known as The First Lady of American Cinema.
