Pulitzers Expand Magazine Eligibility

Three new categories are open to magazines.

The Pulitzer Prizes have opened things up a bit. There are now three new categories open to online and print magazines — International Reporting, Criticism and Editorial Cartooning.

The addition of the three categories means there are a total of five that a majority of magazines can enter. Last year, the Pulitzers opened Investigative Reporting and Feature Writing.

“Magazines are adapting to the digital age and accelerating their publication schedules to report on a timely basis consistent with what newspapers do,” said Mike Pride, administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, in an announcement. “The board is attuned to this media convergence and is opening our competition in light of it.”
