They are awarded by Columbia on the recommendation from the Pulitzer Board. The Pulitzer juries provide three finalists in each category to the board. There are 14 categories for journalism: public service, breaking news reporting, investigative reporting, explanatory reporting, beat reporting, national reporting, international reporting, feature writing, commentary, criticism, editorial writing, editorial cartooning, breaking news photography and feature photography. The jurors meet at Columbia in New York City in March. The Pulitzer Prizes are announced in April. Smith, 57, has been executive editor of the Record-Journal since 1992.
