Pulitzer Prizes Broadened to Include Online-Only Publications

Dec 12, 2008

The Pulitzer Prizes in journalism, which honor the work of American newspapers appearing in print, have been expanded to include text-based newspapers and news organizations that publish only on the internet, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced. The Board also has decided to allow entries made up entirely of online content to be submitted in all 14 Pulitzer journalism categories. Consistent with its historic focus on daily and weekly newspapers, the Board will continue to exclude entries from printed magazines and broadcast media and their respective web sites. In addition to text stories, the competition will continue to allow a full range of online content, such as interactive graphics and video, in nearly all categories. Two photography categories will continue to restrict entries to still images.
