About the Awards
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 our community of 250,000.
Our raison d'etre is to bring dataviz into the mainstream, meaning huge media exposure for shortlistees, inclusion in our exhibitions in London & New York and (for the winners) a feature spot on InformationisBeautiful.net.
Aside from the trophies, the cash and the free tickets to our lavish London party, successful entrants have gained side benefits from their wins - like new clients or jobs at hot startups. What's more, recognition from international awards looks very good to immigration authorities who grant work visas and green cards. Just saying...
Entries & Nominations now closed, but in 2016 the process looked like this:
Enter your own work (paid) - Solo practitioners and dataviz creators from any kind of organisation were able to submit their own work, which guaranteed a place in our showcase and a chance for consideration by judges for the longlist. Entry fees below: students entered for free.
Nominate work you've seen (free) - Members of the public and students nominated favourite 2016 dataviz & infographics by other creators - as long as they were not connected to them! Nominations do not guarantee entry but the best ended up in the showcase.
