2007 Pulitzer Prize
The Pulitzer Prizes for 2007 were announced on April 16, 2007.
In November 2006, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced two changes that would apply for the 2007 awards:
- "online elements will be permitted in all journalism categories except for the competition's two photography categories, which will continue to restrict entries to still images."
- a "category called Local Reporting will replace Beat Reporting as one of the 14 prizes in journalism"; the board explained that "while the local category replaces the Beat Reporting category that was created in 1991, the work of beat reporters remains eligible for entry in a wide range of categories that include—depending on the specialty involved—national, investigative, and explanatory reporting, as well as the new local category."
Famous quotes containing the word prize:
“It is impossible to think of Howard Hughes without seeing the apparently bottomless gulf between what we say we want and what we do want, between what we officially admire and secretly desire, between, in the largest sense, the people we marry and the people we love. In a nation which increasingly appears to prize social virtues, Howard Hughes remains not merely antisocial but grandly, brilliantly, surpassingly, asocial. He is the last private man, the dream we no longer admit.”
—Joan Didion (b. 1934)
