All of us have probably heard about the Nobel Prize at one time or another. As one of the more prestigious and well-known prizes that are awarded it is equally as famous as its recipients. Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel established the prize in 1895 and since that time his will established that the prize continue to be awarded annually around December 10, the anniversary of his death.
The prize itself is available across six different fields: literature, physics, chemistry, medicine, economics and peace. Winners of the prizes, or laureates, receive a gold medal, a diploma and sum of money that is determined by the Nobel Foundation. According to 2012 data, each prize is worth an average of $1.2 million. Not a bad way to earn a paycheck for being an outstanding contributor in their respective field of study.
Between 1901 and 2013, the Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded 106 times to 110 Nobel Laureates.
