Entry site for the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism

Each spring, Columbia University awards Pulitzer Prizes in 14 journalism categories. The winners are chosen by the Pulitzer Prize Board, which seeks to recognize journalistic excellence in eligible news organizations.

Entries must be based on material coming from a United States newspaper or news site that publishes at least weekly. Only material published in 2013 may be submitted. Magazines and broadcast media, and their respective Web sites, are not eligible. Entries that involve collaboration between an eligible organization and ineligible media will be considered if the eligible organization does the preponderance of the work and publishes it first (see the FAQ for other limitations on entry by partnership).

Entry fee: $50 per entry - paid by credit card only (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover).
