I was browsing through suite101.com’s Limelite Blog when I came across this exciting news: For the first time, online news providers are eligible to be considered for the coveted Pulitzer Journalistic Excellence Awards. Follow this link to find out how to enter, keeping in mind the deadline is February 9th, 09 for 2008 writing. For a long time, those of us who work in new media have understood that outstanding news reporting does happens online, and many people, myself included, prefer to get their news from the Internet, rather than from newspapers and magazines. It is a tribute and an honour to online writers that an organization as highly respected as the Pulitzer has recognized this.
Direct from their site:
Send all entries by February 1 to: Pulitzer Prize Office, 709 Journalism, 2950 Broadway, Mail Code 3865, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027. Good Luck!
