Pulitzers expand eligibility in feature, investigative categories to online, print magazines

The Pulitzer Prizes have expanded eligibility for two categories.

The board overseeing the journalism awards announced Monday that the Investigative Reporting and Feature Writing categories will now include many online and print magazines.

The board has also amended its rules regarding partnerships.

Eligible news organizations will now be allowed to nominate journalists employed by partnering organizations even if those organizations are themselves ineligible to compete for Pulitzer Prizes.

Danielle Allen, chair of the Pulitzer Prize Board, says great journalism is reaching American audiences "in new formats and new channels" that the panel supports "cross-media partnerships, new platforms and new tools to strengthen the cause of journalism."
