(Continued)

The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens won the prize for commentary with his columns on American foreign policy and domestic politics.

In the criticism category, Philip Kennicott of The Washington Post was honored for his essays on art.

The prize for editorial writing went to Tim Nickens and Dan Ruth of the Tampa Bay Times of St. Petersburg, Fla., for a campaign that helped continue fluoridation of the drinking water for the county’s 700,000 people.

Tampa Bay Times Editor Neil Brown said that they composed “clear and forceful editorials.”

“Tim Nickens and Dan Ruth went to bat for hundreds of thousands of people, many of them poor, who were being deprived a chance at better health,” Brown said in a statement. “If we don’t do this work, if the Times doesn’t speak up, who will?”

Javier Manzano, a freelance photographer, won the feature photography prize for a picture distributed by Agence France-Presse of two Syrian rebel soldiers.
