According to this Huffington Post news entry online only newspapers are now eligible for entry into the coveted Pulitzer prize competition.
One can only wonder if the Cincinnati Beacon (where I initially post all my cartoons) will one day seek eligibility and then maybe my own hack cartoons would in turn be eligible.
However, a further look at the details at Editor & Publisher
notes some exception that would possibly deny both the Beacon and the Huffington Post from entry.
At minimum eligibility they must “publish in print or online at least weekly; that are primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories; and that adhere to the highest journalistic principles.”
It’s the last part that may be an issue. I think both would be classified as media activist websites versus online newspapers.
