The New York Times staff received its prize for an alleged "agenda-setting" reporting on Putin's efforts to project Russia's power overseas, the announcement from the Columbia School of Journalism said.

The Washington Post's David Fahrenthold has won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting, which included the revelation that Donald Trump had made false claims about his charitable fundraising as well as breaking the news of the tape in which the tycoon bragged about groping women.

Other winners included an worldwide consortium of more than 300 reporters on six continents exposing the so-called Panama Papers, detailing the hidden infrastructure and global scale of offshore tax havens used by the high and mighty.

From Japan, Kyodo News and The Asahi Shimbun took part in the ICIJ work from the beginning, while Japanese public broadcaster NHK joined it later.

The Daily News, a New York City tabloid, and ProPublica, a web-based platform specializing in investigative journalism, won for uncovering official abuse of eviction rules that ousted hundreds of mostly poor minorities from their homes, Pulitzer Prize Administrator Mike Pride said.

As the Associated Press reports, news organizations often get wind of their wins before they are officially announced.

The Pulitzer Prize is an award for achievements in newspaper, magazine and online journalism, literature and musical composition in the United States, according to published sources. His cartoons depicting political and cultural topics were described by the judges as "biting prose and crisp wit".

Editorial Writing: Art Cullen, The Storm Lake Times.

Lynn Nottage won the drama award for "Sweat", a play which was described as "a nuanced yet powerful drama that reminds audiences of the stacked deck still facing workers searching for the American dream".
