The 100th class of the Pulitzer Prizes was announced on April 18 at Columbia University. To celebrate the centennial anniversary, Pulitzer programs took place throughout the year around the country in order to “spark a national conversation about journalism, arts and letters, and music,” said Mike Pride, Pulitzer Prize administrator.

According to Pride, the office received nearly 3,000 entries across all 21 categories, and the 14 journalism categories saw more than 1,100 entries. The Tampa Bay Times, the Boston Globe, the New York Times and the New Yorker each won two awards this year. Two winners were named for breaking news photography, and the New Yorker was the first magazine to win a Pulitzer after five categories were expanded to include such publications.

“It was really a robust year for journalism,” Pride said. “The range of big news in the world was well-represented by the stories in the finals. If you look at the results as a whole in journalism, they cover a lot of the basis. What that means is some really, really good work was done on the major journalistic challenges of the year.”
