Pulitzer Prizes 2016 Winners List: In a ceremony held and had a YouTube live streaming today, the winners of the 2016 Pulitzer Prizes were announced. It was all in a similar fashion as they were conducted for the very first time in 1917. It was the 100th year for this award. (check: Ishq Ka Rang Safed.)



It was very much expected that Lin-Manuel Miranda was going to take a Pulitzer for Hamilton and it happened, of course. However, it was very much of a surprise that the Tampa Bay Times also took a Pulitzer home. Twenty winners received a $10,000 prize while the journalism category’s Public Service winner got a shiny gold medal.
