THIS YEAR’S WINNERS of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize have been announced, with the Los Angeles Times and New York Times receiving two awards apiece.
Three Washington Post photographers share the Best News Photography award, while the Denver Post got the nod for Editorial Cartooning.
For the first time ever, a Pulitzer was awarded to an onling news organisation, ProPublica, for work not produced in print. Although a reporter at the organisation has won a Pulitzer before, that award was for work done in conjunction with the New York Times Magazine.
Jennifer Egan’s novel A Visit from the Goon Squad took the Fiction prize and Siddhartha Mukherjee’s work, the Emperor of All Maladies, received the non-fiction award.
No prize was awarded for the Breaking News Reporting category. For the full list of award winners, see the Pulitzer’s site.
