Columbia Announces Pulitzer Prize Jurors

January 20, 1988

NEW YORK (AP) _ The Pulitzer Prize nominating jurors who will pass judgment on journalistic works published in 1987 have been announced by Columbia University President Michael I. Sovern.

The Pulitzers are awarded each spring by Columbia University on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board. The jurors screen all entries and then nominate specific entries for the board’s consideration.

Jurors are assigned to work in one of the 14 Pulitzer journalism categories: public service, general news reporting, investigative reporting, explanatory journalism, specialized reporting, national reporting, international reporting, feature writing, commentary, criticism, editorial writing, editorial cartooning, spot news photography and feature photography.

The jurors are asked to submit three nominations to the board, not in any order of preference.

The entries are then turned over to the Pulitzer Prize Board, which has the authority to select from among the entries nominated by the jurors, make substitutions for those nominations or award no prize at all in a particular category.

Inquiries, entries and exhibits should be addressed to Robert C. Christopher, Administrator, The Pulitzer Prizes, 702 Journalism Building, Columbia University, New York, N.Y. 10027. Entries must be accompanied by a $20 fee. The deadline for submission of entries is Feb. 1.
