    Another online milestone for the Pulitzer Prize

    It’s prize season for journalists, and today came the biggest of them all: . And the trend toward online-only news organizations playing a part in what has traditionally been a newspaper game continues.

    In the journalism categories, of the 1,097 total entries, about 100 came from online-only outlets, . Those entries came from 60 different news organizations. That’s a healthy growth curve, considering that in 2009, the first year online entries were welcomed, 37 organizations submitted 65 entries.

    In the winner’s circle again is ProPublica, which took home its . But unlike the nonprofit’s last prize, which was for a story published in The New York Times Magazine, this year’s prize (for reporters ) was for work that didn’t move through a partner newspaper (although they did partner with radio’s Planet Money and This American Life). As , “This year’s Prize is the first for a group of stories not published in print.”

    ProPublica’s win follows on the heels of last year’s Pulitzer for Mark Fiore and his animated editorial cartoons, which had a home on SFGate, not in the San Francisco Chronicle, and the in 2009.

    At the same time more online-only content is receiving a nod from the Pulitzer committee, it’s also worth noting that more projects are entering the awards that include a digital component. In this year’s journalism entries nearly a third featured online content, which is up from just one fourth last year. Of the finalists digital content was featured in seven winners, including the and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s Investigative Reporting prize among others.

    A hearty congratulations to all the winners and finalists — especially the three past or present AndroidForMobile Fellows to be honored. They are current AndroidForMobile Fellow Tony Bartelme (finalist in Feature Writing), 2005 AndroidForMobile Fellow Amy Ellis Nutt (winner in Feature Writing), and Mary Schmich (finalist in Commentary). Nutt’s win is (if our quick count is right) to be won by a AndroidForMobile Fellow.
