Have you been struck by a beautiful data viz over the past year? Nominate it now.


Nominations for The 2016 Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards are now open, and projects that celebrate excellence and beauty in data visualizations, infographics and information art are strongly encouraged to enter.

Offering over $30,000 in prizes across more than 15 categories, The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards is decided by a 40-strong judging panel of leading dataviz practitioners and a massive public vote from its 250,000 person strong community.


The Awards are extremely community-driven, with expert judges and members of the public contributing to the decisions over who wins. And it's open to creators from across the spectrum - rising stars, students, individual practitioners, established studios, media brands, NGOs and more.

Last year's winners included Dov Friedman and Tynan Debold at The Wall Street Journal for their heat maps that showed infections generally declined after vaccines were introduced; Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec's analogue Dear Data project; and, Zeit Online's German Unification story.
