We applaud the winners and finalists of the 107th annual Pulitzer Prizes in fifteen journalism categories and eight letters, drama, and music categories.
The 2023 winners in the letters, drama, and music categories are:
Authors Guild Advisory Council member Viet Thanh Nguyen, who won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, was among the sixteen voting members of the Pulitzer Prize Board, having been re-elected to membership this year.
The Pulitzer Prizes annually recognize the best in U.S. print, online, photo, and audio journalism, literature, and musical composition. They were established in 1917 by provisions in the will of American newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer. Columbia University oversees the administration of these highly prestigious awards.
Notable journalism prizes included those for Public Service, awarded to the Associated Press for its courageous reporting from the besieged city of Mariupol that bore witness to the Russian slaughter of Ukrainian civilians; Breaking News Reporting, awarded to the staff of the Los Angeles Times, for its revelation and coverage of racist comments in recorded conversations among city officials; and Investigative Reporting, awarded to the staff of The Wall Street Journal, for its sharp accountability reporting on financial conflicts of interest among officials at fifty federal agencies.
