The Pulitzer Prize board announced today that they are now accepting online material as eligible to win in any of the 14 Pulitzer Prize categories. The Board stated that submissions “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.’”
This frees online publications from the 2006 constrictions of the Pulitzer Board when some online content was allowed in a few categories.
One more step in recognition for bloggers. I look forward to the first blogger win in any category.
