Today, 2013 Pulitzer Prize winners and finalists were announced. The coveted award is handed out once a year for excellence in journalism, literature and the arts.

No local journalists won, but the LA Times was well-represented among the finalists. The list included two Times writers and one photographer. From the Pulitzer website:

Feature Photography: Liz O. Baylen of Los Angeles Times For her intimate essay, shot in shadowy black and white, documenting the shattered lives of people entangled in prescription drug abuse. Criticism: Mary McNamara of Los Angeles Times
For her searching television criticism that often becomes a springboard for provocative comments on the culture at large.

International Reporting: Richard Marosi of Los Angeles Times
For his provocative articles on the fate of thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants deported by the United States in recent years, many who are living desperate lives along the U.S.-Mexico border.
