Pulitzers now accepting from online-only publications

Submissions from online-only publications can now be recognized by the prestigious U.S. journalism awards, the Pulitzer Prizes.

According the a news release:

“The Pulitzer Prizes in journalism have been expanded to include many text-based newspapers and news organizations that publish only on the Internet.

The Pulitzer Board also has decided to allow entries made up entirely of online content to be submitted in all 14 Pulitzer journalism categories.

While broadening the competition, the Board stressed that all entered material — whether online or in print — should come from United States newspapers or news organizations that publish at least weekly, that are “primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories,” and that “adhere to the highest journalistic principles.”

Robert Niles of the Online Journalism Review has put together “An online journalist’s guide to entering the Pulitzer Prizes.”
