The Information Is Beautiful Awards

Friday, September 9th, 2011


There’s so much incredible creativity and innovation in the field of data and information visualisation, we thought we might be cool to set up an awards.

The Information Is Beautiful Awards, in fact.

The idea is to reward practitioners, big and small, from anywhere in the world. And to celebrate, honour and generally trumpet great work and great contributions to this exciting and growing field.

Thanks to a generous sponsor, Kantar, we can run it as a non-profit venture and hand out decent-sized cash prizes to winners.

Also, excitingly, every month, we’ll be running visualisation challenges so everyone can have a chance to contribute.

Pop over and take a look. Tell us what you think.

You can follow our awards on Twitter, too.

    “About the Awards” says that this is nonprofit and you don’t have to “pay a chunk” to enter the awards, but the submission page is asking for a $10 entry fee. Which is correct?

      Never mind, I found the inaugural blog post. I would like to know what the prizes are before I pony up the cash for a submission, though.
