New York (CNN Business)The Pulitzer Prizes recognize some of the year's most important journalism.
Darnella Frazier, who filmed the death of George Floyd, received a special citation, Aminda Marqués González, co-chair of the Pulitzer Prize Board, announced Friday.
These three topics, unsurprisingly, were the coverage areas honored with Pulitzer Prizes, the most prestigious awards in American journalism, on Friday afternoon.
"The magnitude of these stories and the pace at which they unfolded pushed many in the news business to the limits of endurance," Marqués González said during a live broadcast.
The awards, administered by Columbia University, recognize reporting in newspapers, magazines and digital news outlets.
