Picture Coverage of the World: Pulitzer Prize Winning Photos
The Pulitzer Prizes for Press Photography are latecomers within the prestigious award system. Established in 1942 during World War II, they started with a general category called "Photography," covering all kinds of photographs. After about a quarter-century, in 1968, this award category was divided into two separate prize groups, entitled "Spot News Photography" and "Feature Photography." This book presents the decision-making processes that lead to the annual Pulitzer Prize winners. Additionally, in each decision-making case, one award-earning photo is reproduced to give an idea about the broad spectrum of aspects and themes declared prize-worthy by the jurors.
