About the Awards

The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards celebrate excellence and beauty in data visualizations, infographics and information art.

Our 2015 winners were announced at an awards ceremony at the end of the year. This year our Awards ceremony will be hosted on Weds November 2nd, celebrating the most beautiful dataviz around.


How it’s possible

The Awards were set up in 2012 by David McCandless, journalist and datavisualizer of Information is Beautiful, in collaboration with Aziz Cami, the then Creative Director at Kantar, now succeeded by the current Creative Director, Emma Whitehead.

The Awards are 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. Entry fees are reasonable and if you’re shortlisted, you'll get invited to the ceremony without shelling out a penny more. The ceremony, food and drink is free - thanks to our beloved sponsor Kantar.
