The Pulitzer Prizes for Press Photography are latecomers within the
prestigious award system. Established during world War II, in 1942, they
started with a general category called „Photography“, covering all kinds
of pictures. After about a quarter-century, in 1968, this award category
was devided into two separate prize groups, entitled „Spot News
Photography“ and „Feature Photography“. This volume at first presents
the decision-making processes leading to the annual Pulitzer Prize
winners. In addition, in each case one award-earing photo is reproduced
to give an idea about the broad spectrum of aspects and themes declared
prize-worthy by the jurors.

Heinz-Dietrich Fischer, Ed.D., Ph.D. is professor emeritus at the Ruhr
University of Bochum, Germany.
