Honoring achievements in newspaper and online journalism, literature, and musical composition for the year 2015, the Pulitzer Prizes 2016 were recently awarded by the Pulitzer Prize Board. This year's announcement marked the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzers, which began in 1917 after a bequest from newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer. Each winner receives a certificate and a US$10,000 cash award. The winner in the public service category of the journalism competition is awarded a gold medal. This year, the Associated Press won the Pulitzer Prize for public service for reporting on abuse in the seafood industry that helped free 2,000 slave labourers, and Reuters and The New York Times shared the breaking news photography award for images of the European refugee crisis. Here are some important names of Pulitzer Prize 2016 winners list. Happy Reading :)
