Browne was one of several New York Times journalists awarded for their work "exposing the predations of Vladimir Putin's regime."
Limerick native Malachy Browne has been named among the Pulitzer Prize winners for 2020 – announced at a virtual ceremony today.
Browne, a senior story producer with The New York Times who specialises in visual investigations, is one of several journalists awarded in the International Reporting category of the prestigious prize for "a set of enthralling stories, reported at great risk, exposing the predations of Vladimir Putin's regime."
The New York Times won three Pulitzer Prizes this year – bringing their total wins to 130.
Winners of the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting are recognised for "a distinguished example reporting on international affairs, using any available journalistic tool", with a prize of $15,000.
Browne, the nephew of broadcaster Vincent Browne, is a graduate of UL, and previously worked at Storyful. He and his team at The New York Times won an Emmy in 2018 for their groundbreaking video about the 2017 Las Vegas shooting.
Other notable Pulitzer Prize 2020 winners include Colson Whitehead, who was recognised in the fiction category for his acclaimed novel The Nickel Boys, and popular podcast 'This American Life', which was named among the winners of the inaugural award for audio reporting.
Dr Des Fitzgerald, the President of UL, is among those who have congratulated Browne on the prestigious prize.

Congrats to Malachy Browne. All that remains now for the extended family is for Vincent to be made a freeman of Broadford. https://t.co/ADndltDnWl
