Putlizer Awards Given to Photographers Who Captured Ebola Crisis In Africa

The New York Times bagged most of the Pulitzer Prizes with awards for its coverage and photos of the Ebola crisis in Africa. Zachary R. Mider's reporting on corporate tax avoidance by Bloomberg News won its first Pulitzer.

The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina, did coverage of the deaths of women and acquired the coveted public service Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal were awarded for investigative reporting. The Pulitzer committee said, Times' Eric Lipton won for "reporting that showed how the influence of lobbyists can sway congressional leaders and state attorneys general, slanting justice toward the wealthy and connected."


An 18-member board of editors, publishers, writers and educators reviewed 21 categories of journalism, letters, drama and music. The public service prize, awarded to a news organization, is a gold medal while winners in all categories received $10,000.

The panel denoted, "Medicare Unmasked," done by the Wall Street Journal staff as "a pioneering project that gave Americans unprecedented access to previously confidential data on the motivations and practices of their health care providers."

The Torrance, California, Daily Breeze won the award for its local coverage of school district corruption, the Los Angeles Times won for criticism in a piece about the TV industry and a feature about the California drought while the Seattle Times won for its breaking news coverage of a landslide.

Online and print magazines were included this year. The board made few changes in its rules on partnerships, letting news organizations nominate journalists who work at partnering outlets even if those groups aren't eligible to compete.
