Fourteen prizes are given every year in journalism. There are prizes in letters that are for fiction, history, biography or autobiography, poetry and general nonfiction. The other prizes are for music and drama. Paid from Pulitzer endowments, a gold medal is one of the special awards for public service in journalism. The other selective categories receive a $5,000 award.
