Pulitzer Prize Winner 2021


Today at 1:00 p.m. ET, the 105th annual Pulitzer Awards for Journalism, Letters, Drama and Music were announced via video stream. Pulitzer Prize Co-Chair Stephen Engelberg said, 'For the second, and we hope last year, we will come to you via remote production.'

Prior to the announcement, Executive Board Co-Chairs Stephen Engelberg and Mindy Marqués spoke about how COVID has impacted the Pulitzer Assessment and the celebrations. Since the theaters were closed during the pandemic, the judges took into account plays that have not yet been performed and that have also been shown online. The personal lunch for the 2020 and 2021 winners will be in New York City this fall as COVID rates continue to fall and restrictions lift.
