The winners of the 2013 Pulitzer Prizes were announced Monday, with the New York Times winning this year’s prize for explanatory reporting. The award was for the paper’s “iEconomy” series investigating the way business has adapted to the changing global economy, largely focusing on Apple.

The reporting lead to changes in the Chinese factories where Apple products are made. Criticism was leveled at the reports for focusing too much on Apple, without addressing the other tech companies who also use cheap Chinese labor for production.

The Pulitzer Prize is a annual series of awards given to recognize excellence in journalism and the arts.
