Kelly made the photo on his last day at the newspaper before moving on to a job at a brewery. The auto killed one of the counter-demonstrators, Heather Heyer.

The awards recognize "the importance of a strong vibrant independent press", new Pulitzers administrator Dana Canedy said at a recent reception.

Kelly says he is "shocked and amazed".

Reuters won two Pulitzer Prizes on Monday, one for exposing the methods of police killing squads in Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, and one for feature photography documenting the Rohingya migrant crisis between Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Greer's novel tells the comic story of a middle-aged novelist.

Frank Bidart's "Half-Light" was the poetry victor.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar's Damn has won the Pulitzer Prize for music - the first non-classical or jazz work to win the award.

The board called it "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life".

In addition to topping many year-end best lists (including ours), DAMN. was awarded five Grammys, though it lost out on album of the year to Bruno Mars' 24K Magic.

The New York Times and the Washington Post shared the honor for national reporting for their coverage of the investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election.

In announcing the journalism prizes, Pulitzer administrator Dana Canedy said the winners "uphold the highest goal of a free and independent press, even in the most trying of times".

The award was given "for deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation's understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect's transition team and his eventual administration".

The Republican president calls the investigation a "witch hunt".

The Press Democrat of Sonoma County, California, received the Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Reporting for the paper's coverage of wildfires in the state last fall.

The New York Times and the New Yorker have won the Pulitzer Prize for public service for their reporting on Harvey Weinstein and sexual misconduct that galvanised the #MeToo movement.

The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow was also recognized for a Weinstein report that detailed the allegations of a woman who reported her accusations to New York police. The movie producer's attorneys have said he denies any non-consensual sexual contact with anyone.

The stories' impact spread beyond Weinstein to allegations against other powerful men in entertainment, politics and elsewhere, toppling such figures as "Today" show host Matt Lauer, actor Kevin Spacey, newsman Charlie Rose and Sen. And the #MeToo hashtag quickly became rallying cry for people to speak out about their own experiences of sexual harassment and assault. The reporting revealed "explosive, impactful journalism that exposed powerful and wealthy sexual predators", the Pulitzer board said.

The Pulitzer prize is best known for recognising USA journalism, but it also gives awards for books, poetry and music.

Prizes were also awarded for fiction, nonfiction, drama, history, biography, poetry and music.

The first journalism prizes were awarded in 1917, including one to the New York Tribune for an editorial on the first anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania.
