The 2011 Pulitzer Prizes were announced on Monday, April 18, 2011. The Los Angeles Times won two prizes, including the highest honor for Public Service. The New York Times also won two awards.[1] No prize was handed out in the Breaking News category.[2] The Wall Street Journal won an award for the first time since 2007.[3] Jennifer Egan's A Visit From the Goon Squad picked up the Fiction prize after already winning the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award.[4] Photographer Carol Guzy of The Washington Post became the first journalist to win four Pulitzer Prizes.[3]

In December 2010, three rules changes were revealed for the 2011 Awards. The first allows print and online outlets that publish at least weekly to use a number of media to report the news "including text reporting, videos, databases, multimedia or interactive presentations or any combination of those formats". The second rule change allows up to five people to be named in an award citation; the previous limit was three. The final rule change allows for digital submission of images to the judges in the two photography categories.[5]

Below, the winner(s) in each category are listed.
