New York: The Pulitzer Prize board is changing how news organizations can enter its competition and says all submissions must now be done online.
The board announced on Wednesday that paper submissions would no longer be accepted. Instead, a digital entry form will go through the Pulitzer website.
Paper submissions have been in use since the contest began in 1917. The board says the new system will streamline the process and make it easier for the board to manage the entries.
The system is for the journalism prizes and doesn't cover the awards in the book, drama or music categories.
The Pulitzers are the most well-known prizes in journalism.
