Pulitzer Prize Eligibilty Now Includes Online Journalism

pulitzerl.jpgThe Pulitzer Prize Board will now permit online entries for all 14 categories of Journalism entries, a change that will permit web-based submissions in Investigative Reporting, Criticism, Feature Writing, and eleven other categories.

So far, the Board has not extended the change to the Letters, Drama, and Music categories–excluding online entries from Fiction, Drama, History, Biography or Autobiography, Poetry and General Nonfiction works. For better or for worse, the first Pulitzer Prize for a digital book or online poetry review probably won’t happen this year.

From the release: “While broadening the competition, the Board stressed that all entered material — whether online or in print — should come from United States newspapers or news organizations that publish at least weekly, that are ‘primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories,’ and that ‘adhere to the highest journalistic principles.’” (Via.)
