Here are all the winners of the 2018 Pulitzer Prizes

Updated at 12:14 p.m. PT

Out of more than 2,400 submissions, just 21 distinguished projects will earn gold Monday in New York City. Pulitzer Administrator Dana Canedy is announcing the winners of the 2018 prize.

Pulitzer judges have whittled their winning group from a vast number of possibilities, and the works they've chosen represent a vast array of styles, mediums and much more. There are photographers, investigators, commentators and cartoonists — and constitute just a few of those honored in the journalism categories.

Add to that number the poets, historians and musicians, among others, and you've got quite a spectrum.

Still, in more than a century, the Pulitzer Prizes haven't shied from the challenge of determining the year's best. Watch the awards live at the link above, and find the categories — and, eventually, their winners — in the list below.
