An honorable mention is merely a name given to a distinction that may or may not be awarded at the end of a contest, exhibition, or competition. The definition implies that it is a distinction given to a entry worthy of mention, but not warranting top prize or first place. Depending on the rules and regulation of a given competition or contest, this may be the same as third to fifth place or may be part of an award given to a collective number of participants who rate the distinction.

Honorable mention can also be interpreted as runner-up status in a contest. Contests that award prizes for certain placements may award an this or a runner-up distinction to its participants. It could be simply the distinction or may include the same prize for all participants who earn that status at the end of the contest.
