Pulitzer Prize Non-Fiction
About the award
The Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction is awarded annually to a 'distinguished and appropriately documented book of nonfiction by an American author'. The winner receives a cash award of $10,000 and a certificate. For many of the writers, the cash prize is not the incentive. Instead, it is the prestige that is acquired from becoming a recipient.
Entries are submitted each year at a charge of $50, which goes towards the funding of the cash prize. A panel of judges are selected, consisting of distinguished members of the field. The judges shortlist 3 entries which are then voted on by the Pulitzer board at a conference in April at the Columbia School of Journalism. The winner is selected by the board's majority vote and announced at 3pm a few days after the deliberations.
The Prize aims to promote excellence in American nonfiction writing, showcasing texts that deal with their subjects in an exceptional and informative manner.Add all books to my bookshelf (English version only)
