Columbia University: 2021 Pulitzer Prize Winners

Columbia University announced the 2021 Pulitzer Prizes, awarded on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board.

The 105th annual Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism, Letters, Drama and Music were announced via streamed video. As Pulitzer Prize board co-chair, Stephen Engelberg, said, “For the second, and we hope last year, we’re coming to you via remote production.”

Prior to the announcement, the board co-chairs, Stephen Engelberg and Mindy Marqués, spoke about how COVID impacted the Pulitzer judging and celebrations. Since theaters were shuttered during the pandemic, the judges considered plays that had not yet been performed and also those that were shown online. The in-person luncheon for both the 2020 and 2021 winners will be held this fall in New York City as COVID rates continue to fall and restrictions are lifted.
