(VOVWORLD) - Anchorage Daily News and ProPublica received this year's Pulitzer Prize for public service for their collaborative investigation into sexual violence in Alaska.

The public service category is often considered the most prestigious in journalism Pulitzer Prizes.

The New York Times won three awards during the online award ceremony on Monday, including one for commentary that went to Nikole Hannah-Jones for her essay on The 1619 Project, a series that re-examined the history of slavery in America.

The Washington Post won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting for its series on climate change, 2°C: Beyond the Limit, while Reuters won the breaking news photography award for documenting last year’s violent protests in Hong Kong.
