Pulitzer Day

Columbia University handed out the Pulitzers today, and even before the award winners were announced, this year's competition was notable because it was the first time that Web-only news sites, including start-up nonprofits Web-only news sites were eligible for the prizes.

The results? Another big haul (five) for The New York Times and two prizes for an old-guard nonprofit, the St. Petersburg Times, including one for national reporting to the staff of its site. Not a single .org made the list of finalists and winners. But change comes slowly to the Pulitzer competition, and the new eligibility rules mean the door has been opened.
