Now's your chance: enter the 2017 Information is Beautiful Awards

The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards 2017 is now open, celebrating the world's most excellent information design.

To mark our sixth year - and the increasing importance of data visualization & infographics across all media - we're refreshing & relaunching the Awards. 

Biggest change is, we've revamped the categories.

So whether it's an infographic, an interactive or some other type of data-driven media, our judges will be testing how well the piece illuminates the topic: Arts, Environments, Current Affairs, Corporate, Humanitarian, Science, Sports - and for everything outside the box - Unusual. Read more about the updated categories.

Thanks to our beloved sponsors Kantar we have $20,000 in prizes to award the creators of the most awesome data-visualization & infographics, as voted by the public & our expert judging panel. 

Everyone selected for the shortlist gets a pair of free invites to our magnificently fun London party

Aside from trophies, cash, extensive press coverage and a feature spot on, previous winners have gone on to land new clients, book deals, investment and jobs with hot startups.


How to enter

Professional practitioners, dataviz studios, agencies & media organisations pay to submit their work; students and members of the public whose work has not been professionally commissioned or published may enter for free. This guarantees you a place in our showcase and a chance for consideration by judges for the longlist. 

Any piece created between 31 May 2016 and 8 September 2017 is eligible. Deadline is Fri 8th September 2017 23:59 PST. So enter now - or be inspired over the coming months to create new pieces around one of our topics.
