  • Pulitzer Prizes: Aretha Franklin, Trump Tax Cheating Story Honored

The New York Times earned a prize in explanatory reporting for an 18-month investigation into the elaborate steps that Trump and his family went to in an effort to avoid paying taxes. Trump has previously taken issue with the Pulitzer Prizes that were handed out in 2018 to stories that examined his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, claiming that Robert Mueller's "no collusion" findings meant that the reporters should return their honors.

The committee also gave a special citation to the staff of the Capital Gazette, a paper in Annapolis, Md. that was the subject of a deadly attack in June that resulted in the murder of five employees.

The Washington Post also won two Pulitzers for photojournalism in Yemen and for criticism.

Post-Dispatch President and Publisher Ray Farris said Messenger's work "exemplifies the highest standards of our profession".

Among other Pulitzer Prizes for journalism and the arts announced Monday, the Los Angeles Times won the Investigative Reporting award for a series of articles on a USC gynaecologist who was accused of sexual misconduct with young patients over more than a quarter-century.

The Queen of Soul is now a Pulitzer Prize victor.

Novelist Richard Powers won the Pulitzer for fiction for "The Overstory", a panoramic look at nine Americans whose lives become entwined due to their experiences with trees, and David W. Blight picked up the prize in history for his acclaimed biography "Frederick Douglas".

In general non-fiction, the prize went to Eliza Griswold for "Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America".

Reuters was also recognised for worldwide reporting for its coverage of the crackdown on Rohingya Muslims.

Reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are serving a seven-year sentence after being convicted of violating the country's Official Secrets Act.

As a result of the work by reporter Maggie Michael, photographer Nariman El-Mofty and video journalist Maad al-Zikry, at least 80 prisoners were released from secret detention sites, and the United Nations rushed food and medicine to areas where the AP revealed that people were starving while corrupt officials diverted global food aid. Their supporters say the two were framed in retaliation for their reporting.

Jackie Sibblies Drury's play Fairview, which deals with white people's obsession with African American stereotypes, won the Pulitzer for drama.

"Fairview" begins as a contemporary domestic comedy involving a well-off black family and ends with the invisible fourth wall destroyed and the audience pulled down a rabbit hole involving race and identity.

This year's music recipient of the Pulitzer is composer Ellen Reid for "prism", an operatic work exploring the trauma of sexual assault that received its world premiere in November by the Los Angeles Opera. "Melodies are endless and inventively transformed, the atmospheric pressure ever changing".

But there was no celebration as the Capital Gazette in Maryland learned on Monday it had won the most prestigious prize in American journalism.

Winners of the public service award receive a gold medal.
