Pulitzer prizes awarded to The New Yorker

For a hundred years, there have been Pulitzer prizes awarded for journalism, but until last year magazines were not eligible; no magazine brands won that first time around, but this year The New Yorker won for feature writing for Kathryn Schulz's July 20 story, "The Really Big One," about an impending massive earthquake striking the Pacific Northwest and Emily Nussbaum, was honored with the Pulitzer Prize for criticism.
"This year’s results are simply astounding––and a source of immense pride," wrote The New Yorker editor David Remnick in a memo to staff. "This is a day of celebration at The New Yorker, first and foremost for these writers, who are so deserving."
