Premiile Pulitzer 2016: link-uri către materialele premiate

Data publicării: 19/04/2016

„Mi-am petrecut întreaga viaţă în slujba jurnalismului, pe care îl consider una dintre cele mai nobile şi importante profesii. Responsabilitatea noastră, a tuturor jurnaliştilor, este extrem de mare, pentru că oamenii citesc si ne cred”. Joseph Pulitzer

Am adunat pentru voi link-uri către toate materialele premiate la cea de-a 100-a ediție a Premiilor Pulitzer și vă invităm să savurați toată lista de articole în zilele ce urmează.

Premiile au fost oferite pentru excelență în jurnalismul de peste ocean, în cadrul Universității Columbia, din New York.

Competiţia a luat naştere ca urmare a dorinţei lui Joseph Pulitzer de a pune bazele primei şcoli de jurnalism şi de a conferi prestigiu acestei profesii, Pulitzer donând prin testament Universităţii Columbia bani pentru a înfiinţa premiul ce îi va purta numele.

Dacă vreți să aflați mai multe despre ce înseamnă aceste premii, vă invităm să citiți  două scurte materiale publicate de noi în anii trecuți:
