Drama – for a distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life.

History – for a distinguished book on the history of the United States.

Biography or Autobiography – for a distinguished biography or autobiography by an American author.
Poetry – for a distinguished volume of original verse by an American author.
General Non-Fiction – for a distinguished book of non-fiction by an American author that is not eligible for consideration in any other category. (English, Member-written)
The Pulitzer Prize is a U.S. award for achievements in newspaper and online journalism, literature and musical composition. It was established by Hungarian-American publisher Joseph Pulitzer and is administered by Columbia University in New York City. According to the administrators of the Pulitzer Prize the correct pronunciation of the name should sound like the verb pull, as in "Pull it, sir".

Prizes are awarded yearly in twenty-one categories. In twenty of these, each winner receives a certificate and a US$10,000 cash award. The winner in the public service category of the journalism competition is awarded a gold medal, which always goes to a newspaper, although an individual may be named in the citation (Spanish, Member-written)
