How many Pulitzer Prize gold medals are given out each year? There are Pulitzer Prizes in 21 categories. The winners in twenty of the categories get a cash prize of $10,000 plus a certificate. Only one medal is awarded, and that is to the winner of the Public Service category of the Journalism competition. The winner of this category is always a newspaper, although an individual may be named in the citation. Pulitzer Prizes were first awarded on this date in 1917 for Biography (Julia Ward Howe by Laura E. Richards and Maude H. Elliott), History (With Americans of Past and Present Days by Jean Jules Jusserand), Editorial Writing (New York Tribune) and Reporting (Herbert Bayard Swope of the New York World). There was no public service award given that first year. Daniel Chester French and Henry Augustus Lukeman designed the medal with a profile of Benjamin Franklin on one side and a printer at work on the other.
"Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light." — Joseph Pulitzer
