Panama Papers Investigation Wins Pulitzer Prize

The Panama Papers investigation, which saw Guardian and other media organisations collaborate on series of stories exposing offshore secrets of rich and famous, has been awarded a prestigious Pulitzer prize.

The prize in the explanatory reporting category was given to the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, together with two US titles, McClatchy and the Miami Herald.

The consortium included Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung, the Guardian, the BBC and about 100 other international media organisations, the Guardian reported.

The Panama Papers were published last April and had a global impact, leading the news agenda for months and leading to high profile resignations and arrests.
