Pulitzer now accepting Online Newspapers for Consideration

According to this Huffington Post news entry online only newspapers are now eligible for entry into the coveted Pulitzer prize competition.

One can only wonder if the Cincinnati Beacon (where I initially post all my cartoons) will one day seek eligibility and then maybe my own hack cartoons would in turn be eligible.

However, a further look at the details at Editor & Publisher
notes some exception that would possibly deny both the Beacon and the Huffington Post from entry.

At minimum eligibility they must “publish in print or online at least weekly; that are primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories; and that adhere to the highest journalistic principles.”

It’s the last part that may be an issue. I think both would be classified as media activist websites versus online newspapers.
