It is the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize awards! The Pulitzer Prize awards began in 1917 recognizing excellence in journalism, letters and education. Joseph Pulitzer was a powerhouse newspaper publisher, fiercely protective of American journalism and in his will made way for the Pulitzer Prize award to expand and continue. The Pulitzers have since expanded to giving out 21 awards in areas including the arts such as photography, music, and poetry. These awards are some of the most recognized and distinguished awards for the humanities.
