The Post and Courier newspaper of Charleston, South Carolina, has won the prestigious Pulitzer prize for Public Service for its series on domestic violence against women, “Till Death Do Us Part.”

New York Times won Pulitzer prizes for international reporting and feature photography for its coverage of the West Africa Ebola outbreak, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch received the Pulitzer prize in photography for its coverage of the Ferguson, Missouri, riots.

The Pulitzer prizes, awarded annually by Columbia University, were announced on Monday (April 20). They recognize extraordinary work in U.S. journalism, literature, drama, and other categories.

Other winners included The Seattle Times staff for its coverage of a deadly landslide, The Wall Street Journal for “Medicare Unmasked,” and Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig for coverage of security lapses at the Secret Service.

The prize for fiction went to “All the Light We Cannot See,” by Anthony Doerr, published by Scribner.
