Pulitzer Prize winners in journalism, arts to be announced
NEW YORK (AP) — The newest winners of the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism and the arts are set to be revealed.
This year’s honorees will be announced Monday at Columbia University in New York.
The journalism awards will recognize exceptional work in 2018 by U.S. newspapers, magazines and online outlets. There are 14 categories for reporting, photography, criticism, commentary and cartoons.
Arts prizes are awarded in seven categories, including fiction, drama and music.
The first journalism prizes were awarded in 1917, and they have come to be considered the field’s most prestigious honor in the U.S.
The contest was established by newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer.
Winners of the public service award receive a gold medal. The other awards carry a prize of $15,000 each.
