Washington Post Architecture Critic Philip Kennicott Wins a Pulitzer
The Washington Post's Pulitzer dry spell is over! After the paper came up empty-handed in last year's awards, Post art and architecture critic Philip Kennicott has won in the journalism prize's Criticism category.
The Post was a finalist in four other categories: Editorial Writing for Jackson Diehl; National Reporting for Craig Whitlock, Greg Miller, Julie Tate, and Karen DeYoung's drone coverage; Public Service for coverage of the Justice Department, and Feature Writing for Eli Saslow's profile of a swimming pool salesman.
Former Washington City Paper reporter Katherine Boo was a finalist in General Nonfiction for her book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity.
