The New York Times and The New Yorker have jointly won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for public service for their reporting on exposing powerful and wealthy sexual predators, including allegations against Hollywood movie maker Harvey Weinstein.
The Press Democrat of Santa Rosa, California, won the breaking news award for coverage of the wildfires that swept through California's wine country last fall.
American rapper and songwriter Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN" won the Pulitzer Prize for music. It is the first non-classical or jazz work to win the award. The 30-year-old musician won five Grammy awards in January for the album.
The Pulitzers, the most prestigious honours in American journalism, have been awarded since 1917. Public service award winners receive a gold medal, and the other awards carry a prize of $15,000 each.
