Newspaper video, interactive graphics eligible for Pulitzer

Newspapers may submit video and interactive graphics as part of their entries for the Pulitzer Prize, effective this year. The AP had the story (see The Washington Post’s copy) on Monday.

For the awards handed out earlier this year, online material was allowed as part of all entries for the first time but limited to written stories or still images in 13 of the 14 categories. The exception was the Public Service category, which has allowed material such as streaming video and databases since 1999.

Here’s what is new:

Entries for the 2007 Pulitzers may contain online material such as video, blogs, databases and interactive graphics for all print categories.

But for the photojournalism awards, still images are the only work allowed. Bummer. Lucky that NPPA started running a monthly contest for its members. You can see entries in video and slideshow categories now.

Props to Paul Conley and Angela Grant.
