Pulitzer officials expand eligibility in arts categories; some non-U.S. citizens can now compete

NEW YORK (AP) — The Pulitzer Prize Board has revised its longtime rules on eligibility for many of its arts awards and will now allow those not born in the U.S. and other non-citizens to compete. The board announced Tuesday that permanent residents and those who have made the U.S. their longtime primary home will be eligible in the categories for books, drama and music. The changes go into effect for the 2025 awards cycle, which begins next spring. Joseph Pulitzer founded the prizes in 1917 with a mission to honor “American” journalism and literature.
