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

Since 2018 we have retooled categories by subject. Our judges test not only how well the work suits the medium (infographic, interactive, data visualization and more) but also how well it illuminates the topic: Arts, Breaking NewsPlaces & Spaces, People, Language & Identity, Politics, Global & Humanitarian, Science & Technology, Leisure, Games & Sport - and for everything outside the box: Unusual


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 judged not only by a panel of experts but also via a public vote so members of our 300,000 strong community help decide who wins. It's open to creators from across the spectrum - rising stars, students, individual practitioners, established studios, media brands, NGOs and more.

All longlisted entrants get featured on the showcase section of this site; all those shortlisted get a free pair of tickets to our fun & extravagant awards ceremony at the end of the year.

Be inspired by the creativity of our 2017 winners. In addition to cash prizes, trophies and extensive media coverage, previous winners have gone on to gain book deals, art exhibitions, investment for their projects and fancy jobs at hot startups.
