The jury noted the work of Ukrainian journalists.

The winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the most prestigious American award in the field of journalism, which has been awarded annually by Columbia University since 1917, have been named in the United States. Awards are awarded in 22 categories.

A special honorable mention by the Pulitzer Prize jury was awarded to Ukrainian journalists who cover the Russian invasion. 12 media workers were killed while performing their professional duty in Ukraine.

The New York Times received the largest number of awards among the media (three, including in the nominations “For the disclosure of a national topic” and “For the disclosure of an international topic”).

The most prestigious nomination is traditionally considered to be “For Service to Society” (its holder receives an honorary gold medal), which this year was received by the Washington Post newspaper for coverage of the attack on the Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021.

The prize in the category “For News Photography” was won by Getty Images photographers who covered the events of January 6, and Marcus Yam from the Los Angeles Times newspaper for covering the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

The prize “For Artistic Photography” was awarded to Reuters photographers for their coverage of the COVID-19 epidemic in India. One of the laureates, Danish Siddiqui, was killed in Afghanistan in July while performing an editorial assignment. The Miami Herald journalists who covered the collapse of the Champlain Towers high-rise building were awarded in the nomination “For Outstanding Presentation of Sensational Material”, and the Tampa Bay Times journalists who published a series of materials about toxic waste at one of Florida’s industrial enterprises received the award for the best investigation.
