Dylan wins Pulitzer Prize.

Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan was awarded an honorary Pulitzer Prize as this year's winners were unveiled in New York.

The performer was cited for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by compositions of extraordinary poetic power".

The Washington Post won six Pulitzer Prizes, the most in its history, including awards for its coverage of the Virginia Tech massacre and a series exposing shoddy treatment of America's war wounded at Walter Reed hospital.
