Walmart and Apple investigations, Syria photos and Colarado shootings coverage among Pulitzer Prize winners

The New York Times picked up four awards at the 96th annual Pulitzer Prizes yesterday.

These were for: David Barboza’s investigation in to the corruption at the heart of the Chinese elite,  investigations into  Wal-Mart  and Apple  and John Branch’s feature about skiers killed in an avalanche.  

Other prize-winners included The Denver Post for its report on the Colorado high school massacre and Associated Press which won the breaking news photography award for its coverage of Syria’s civil war

A slideshow of the award-winning images by Rodrigo Abd, Manu Brabo, Narciso Contreras, Khalil Hamra and Muhammed Muheisen can be viewed here.

Santiago Lyon, Associated Press’s Director of Photography, said his colleagues were “some of the bravest and most talented photographers in the world” .

In a move that reflected the changing landscape of the US journalism industry, the award for National Reporting went to Lisa Song, Elizabeth McGowan and David Hasemyer of Inside Climate News, a website with no office and only seven members of staff.

The site was founded in 2008 and was recognised for its report on the flawed regulation of US oil pipelines

In the local award category, the prize went to Minneapolis’s Star Tribune for reports on the rise in infant deaths at poorly regulated day care homes

The stories were credited with prompting legislative action.

Each award carries a $10,000 prize, with the exception of the the public service award, won this year by Florida’s Sun Sentinel newspaper for its investigation in to off-duty police officers who recklessly speed in their cars
