WaPo wins three Pulitzer Prizes

by | May 6, 2024

The Washington Post has won Pulitzer Prizes for National Reporting, Editorial Writing and Commentary and was honored as a finalist in Public Service, International Reporting and Illustrated Reporting and Commentary.

“To be recognized as Pulitzer winners and finalists once again is humbling and testament to The Post’s commitment to excellence and impactful journalism,” said publisher and CEO William Lewis. “As we look ahead, I’m excited for us to share our exceptional, award-winning news and reported opinion with even more readers across America and the world.”

According to WaPo, the staff of The Post “won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for “American Icon,” its visceral, innovative series examining the rise of the AR-15 – a weapon with a singular hold on a polarized nation. Drawing on the work of more than 75 journalists, the series carefully presented elements including never-before-published crime-scene photos and body-cam footage; interviews with industry insiders and shooting survivors; and findings from autopsy reports and investigative files to illustrate this weapon’s devastating capacity to kill and its impact on communities across the country. The series was also named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.”

“This extraordinary series exemplifies The Washington Post’s commitment to deep reporting and new storytelling approaches in the public interest,” said executive editor Sally Buzbee.

Buzbee added that she was “immensely proud” of the winners and finalists, “whose work reflects our mission to produce consequential journalism with impact.”

According to Wikipedia, The Pulitzer Prize is administered by Columbia University for achievements in newspaper, magazine, online journalism, literature, musical composition in the United States. It was established in 1917 by provisions in the will of Joseph Pulitzer, who had made his fortune as a newspaper publisher.
