Pulitzer Prize 2019

Pulitzer Prize 2019

The prestigious Pulitzer Prize 2019 was announced on 16 April 2019.

The late American singer-songwriter Aretha Franklin was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation honour for her contribution to the American music and culture.

REUTERS

Reuters won two Pulitzer Prizes on 15 April, one for revealing the massacre of 10 Muslim Rohingya men by Buddhist villagers and Myanmar security forces, and another for photographs of Central American migrants seeking refuge in the United States.

The awards marked the second year in a row that Reuters has won two Pulitzers, the most prestigious prize in American journalism. Reuters has won seven since 2008.

Reuters and the Associated Press were both awarded prizes for international reporting, with AP winning for its coverage of war atrocities in Yemen.
