Print and online magazines are now eligible for Pulitzer Prizes in all journalism categories.

The Pulitzer Prize Board announced on Wednesday that in 2016 will be accepted beginning in December for the 2017 prizes.

The board says it made its decision after two years of experimentation.

New entry guidelines are posted at Pulitzer.org .

The Pulitzers are considered one of American journalism’s most prestigious awards. They recognize various categories of reporting, photography and opinion writing, as well as editorial cartooning.

The prizes also honour drama, music and fiction and non-fiction books.

The Pulitzers are administered by Columbia University. The 2016 Pulitzers marked the centennial of the awards being handed out.
