And The 2022 Pulitzer Prize Winners Are...

The Washington Post and the New York Times were among several news outlets that were awarded Pulitzer Prizes Monday for their coverage last year, honoring journalism that covered topics from the attack on the U.S. Capitol to fatal traffic stops, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal was named a finalist for explanatory reporting for its coverage of the Tulsa race massacre 100 years later. The Journal, and specifically its chief foreign-affairs correspondent, Yaroslav Trofimov, were collectively named a finalist for international reporting for the news outlet’s coverage of Afghanistan.

The Pulitzers are among the most prestigious awards in the journalism business and are awarded by Columbia University annually. They have been awarded for more than 100 years.

The Washington Post was awarded the coveted Pulitzer for public service for its coverage of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The New York Times won the Pulitzer in the national, international and criticism categories. New York Times reporter Andrea Elliott’s nonfiction book, “Invisible Child” also was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction.

In her opening remarks, Pulitzer Prizes Administrator Marjorie Miller said she was honored to be presenting the awards at a “time when truth and facts and books are under increasing assault.”


Several metro newspapers also took home awards. The Miami Herald won the Pulitzer for breaking news for its coverage of the Surfside, Fla., condo collapse. The Tampa Bay Times won the Pulitzer for investigative reporting for its coverage of toxic hazards in Florida’s lone battery recycling plant.
