The New York Times was awarded Pulitzer Prizes on Monday for its investigative journalism and cultural criticism, while The Washington Post won for its comprehensive coverage of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
The staff of The Times won the prize in the international category for a deeply reported look at the failures of America’s air war across the Middle East, including its tragic civilian toll.
An investigation into deadly police traffic stops around the United States by The Times was also recognized for national reporting.
Salamishah Tillet, a contributing critic at large for The Times, won the criticism category for her writing on race in arts and culture.
Another Times reporter, Andrea Elliott, won the Pulitzer Prize in the general nonfiction category for her book “Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival and Hope in an American City,” which originated with a 2013 series she did at The Times.
The Washington Post won the public service category, considered the most prestigious of the prizes, for “The Attack,” a sprawling chronological examination of what led to the siege on the Capitol building, what transpired during the insurrection and the riot’s aftermath.
