About the Awards

Hello and welcome


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

Last year we awarded 26 prizes across 6 categories and 8 special awards with entries from more than 20 different countries. The standard was exceptionally high and we really appreciate the effort people put into entering the awards.

Mini challenges

We also host regular visualization challenges to keep your datavis juices flowing. They are open to everyone and anyone, have a look at previous challenges here, and register to hear about the next mini challenge here.

How it’s possible

The Awards were set up in 2012 by David McCandless, journalist and datavisualizer,  in collaboration with Aziz Cami, Creative Director, Kantar.

The Awards are non-profit and community-driven – that means you don’t need to shell out a big wedge of cash to enter your work, and if you’re successful, you won’t need to shell out again for a fancy sit down dinner awards night.

 We’ll have a great party instead.

That’s free, thanks to our beloved sponsor Kantar.
