Thomson Reuters Corporation : Reuters Wins Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting, Finalist for Investigative Reporting and Breaking News Photography

NEW YORK, April 14, 2014 -
Reuters, one of the world's largest multimedia news providers, was today
awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting. Reuters
journalists Jason Szep, Andrew R.C. Marshall and team were honored with the
first-ever text Pulitzer Prize to be won by Reuters for their series on the
oppression of the Muslim Rohingya of Myanmar.

For two years, Reuters reporters investigated human-rights abuses, bringing
the international dimensions of the Rohingya to global attention. As a result
of their work, more than 900 people were freed from brutal trafficking rings.

Awarding the prize to Reuters in the International Reporting category, the
Pulitzer committee recognized the team for ".their courageous reports on the
violent persecution of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority in Myanmar that, in
efforts to flee the country, often falls victim to predatory
human-trafficking networks."

"We are immensely proud of Jason, Andrew and team for their outstanding work,"
said Stephen J. Adler, editor-in-chief, Reuters. "I'm especially delighted
that we won our first text Pulitzer for the kind of journalism that reflects
many of Reuters core strengths: on the ground reporting, rigorous attention
to fact and fairness, great knowledge of the region and the topic drawn from
years of reporting experience in the field, brilliant visual components, and
courage and tenacity."

Reuters was also recognized as a finalist in two additional categories. A
series by Megan Twohey, which exposed the underground market for adopted
children, was named a finalist in the Investigative Reporting category and
Goran Tomasevic was named a finalist in the Breaking News Photography
category for a series of photographs documenting frontline combat in Syria.

"Winning a Pulitzer Prize for this important work is a testament to the
dedication of our journalists around the world. This recognition reflects the
total professionalism we strive to deliver in everything that we do across
our organization," said James C. Smith, chief executive officer, Thomson
Reuters. "We are tremendously proud of Jason, Andrew, Megan and Goran and
congratulate them on the bravery, brilliance and compassion of their work."
