The winners for the 99th edition of the Pulitzer Prize 2015 have been announced revealing who scored top honours in the world of journalism, fiction and drama among other categories, for the prestigious writing award. 102 distinguished jurors have sifted through the 2,500 entrants for the coveted awards, which boil down to one winner for each of the 21 categories. 

Small town newspaper The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina with a staff of only 80 and a relatively small daily circulation of 85,000, won the most prestigious of the Pulitzer Prizes for journalism, the 'Public Service' award. Other journalism awards went to The New York Times for 'International Reporting' for its work covering the West African Ebola crisis. 

The prize for 'Fiction' has been awarded to All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, a novel set in the bleak time of World War II. The jury called it "an imaginative and intricate novel inspired by the horrors of World War II and written in short, elegant chapters that explore human nature and the contradictory power of technology."

The 'Poetry' award went to Digest by Gregory Pardlo, and the 'Drama' prize to Between Riverside And Crazy by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Take a look at the full list of winners here
