Pulitzer prisen blev uddelt første gang i 1917. Prisen er på $10.000 og uddeles i 21 kategorier. Fra journalistik, fotografi og musik til skønlitteratur. Pulitzer er forbeholdt amerikanere. Pulitzer består af flere juryer (i alt 102 medlemmer) og en dommerkomite. Dommerkomiteen kan underkende juryernes anbefaling og kan vælge slet ikke at uddele en pris i en kategori, hvis årets bud på en prisvinder ikke findes at leve op til standarten.
