Kashmiri Photographers Among List of Pulitzer Prize 2020 Winners

The biggest event for journalists and writers is undoubtedly the announcement of Pulitzer Prizes. From recognising true journalism, that is raw and riddled with revelatory reportage, to writing that is inventive and evocative. However, for Indians, this time the awards brought recognition close to home as three Kashmiri photographers, Dar Yasin, Channi Anand, and Mukhtar Khan attached with The Associated Press, won an award for their coverage of the region.

The full list of awards can be seen here. Below are some of the leading ones:

Breaking News Reporting: Staff of The Courier-Journal

Investigative Reporting: Brian M. Rosenthal, The New York Times

Explanatory Reporting: Staff of The Washington Post

International Reporting: Staff of The New York Times
