Pulitzer Prize winners named

13th April 2010

The 2010 recipients of the prestigious Pulitzer Prizes have been named by Columbia University, with the Washington Post picking up a number of honours.

In the award's journalism section, the newspaper won four out of the 14 prizes, with Anthony Shadid taking home the international reporting gong.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post's Gene Weingarten scooped the commentary honour, while the paper's Kathleen Parker and Sarah Kaufman won the commentary and criticism prizes respectively.

In the letters, drama and music category, Liaquat Ahamed's Lords of Finance was awarded the history prize and The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles took the biography honour.

The Dead Hand, David E. Hoffman's exploration of the Cold War arms race, won the general nonfiction accolade, Versed by Rae Armantrout won the poetry prize and Paul Harding's Tinkers was the recipient of the fiction award.

The Pulitzer Prize Board also gave a posthumous special citation to country music star Hank Williams, praising 'his craftsmanship as a songwriter who expressed universal feelings with poignant simplicity'.
