Data Journalism Awards 2019 open for entries

Data Journalism Awards 2019 logo

The Data Journalism Awards is now accepting entries for its 2019 awards.

It’s the 8th year of the awards. This year the “Best data journalism team” category has been divided into two categories: small and large teams, with the “Small newsrooms (one or more winners)” category making way for the change.

The awards website has also been revamped to include a range of resources for data journalists, a “Community” section (in addition to the existing Slack group) and news on data journalism developments.

The deadline to enter is 7 April 2019. Winners get an all-expenses-covered trip to June’s Global Editors Network (GEN) Summit and Data Journalism Awards ceremony.

3 weeks left to enter the Data Journalism Awards

The deadline for the Data Journalism Awards is now just 3 weeks away. One category for educators and young journalists to look out for is the ‘Student and young data journalist of the year‘ which seeks to shine a light “the outstanding work of a new talent in data journalism, for projects done while they are still studying or early in their professional careers.”

The category is open to all data journalists under the age of 27 — but not students over that age (who I’m told should apply for the Best Individual Portfolio category). Submissions can include one or as many as ten pieces of data journalism. Winners get $1801 (the year William Playfair reportedly created the pie chart) and a trophy.

Last year’s winner Yaryna Serkez won for a portfolio that included a reconstruction of the last three days of the Ukraine’s 2014 Maidan revolution, the Snow Fall-esque “Anatomy of the Carpathians“, and a network analysis of pro-Russian trolls on Facebook in Ukraine.

There are also some new categories: Innovation in data journalism, and Best data journalism team. More on the website.
