The Pulitzer Prize Awards
The Pulitzer Prize is an award for achievements in newspaper, magazine, online journalism, literature, and musical composition within the United States. It was established in 1917 by provisions in the will of Joseph Pulitzer, who had made his fortune as a newspaper publisher, and is administered by Columbia University
Prizes are awarded annually in twenty-one categories. In twenty of the categories, each winner receives a certificate and a US$15,000 cash award (raised from $10,000 in 2017). The winner in the public service category is awarded a gold medal.
A Pulitzer Prize winner may be an individual, a group of individuals, or a news organization's staff. Nominated finalists are selected by the nominating juries for each category as finalists in the competition. The Pulitzer Prize Board generally selects the Pulitzer Prize winners from the three nominated finalists in each category.
The names of nominated finalists have been announced only since 1980. The Pulitzer Prizes are usually awarded at a luncheon in late May, about a month after the names of the winners have been announced.
