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.
