The 2012 Pulitzer Prizes were announced at Columbia University in New York on Monday, and they featured two first-time winners.

The Huffington Post reported that David Wood won the first Pulitzer Prize in the seven-year history of the online news organization for his 10-part series called “Beyond the Battlefield,” which is about the lives of badly wounded veterans and their families. Wood won in the category of National Reporting.

And the 2012 Pulitzer for Editorial Cartooning went to Matt Wuerker of Politico, which has been in existance for the past five years. Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris said to Politico, “He knows that politics is serious stuff, … but he also knows that telling the story of politics should be a hell of a lot of fun. “

The Philadelphia Inquirer, which has been bouncing between ownerships the last few years, won its 19th Pulitzer for its seven-part series, “Assault on Learning,” a look at violence in Philadelphia’s public schools.

According to the Inquirer, it was the paper’s first win since 1997. It won the Pulitzer for Public Service, the most prestigious honor in the business.
