Pulitzer Prize Winners Announced

All hail the written word! This year’s Pulitzer Prizes were announced on Monday in 14 journalism categories and seven arts categories, with no prize awarded for fiction. The New York Times was the only media outlet to win two Pulitzers, one for international reporting on Africa and another for explanatory reporting. The highly coveted public service Pulitzer went to The Philadelphia Inquirer. But the biggest twist in this year’s awards is that two exclusively online news outlets, the Huffington Post and Politico, won their first Pulitzer Prizes—a clear nod to the evolving media landscape.
