Thank you to all who entered their work. We received nearly 900 entries this year - a 15% increase on 2018 - with pieces from across the US, Europe, China, India and Latin America.

The talent is high and the field broad, with top media outlets and design studios competing head-to-head with experienced solo practitioners and absurdly talented students. 

Our categories look at entries not by technical discipline (dataviz, infographics, interactive etc) but by how well they illuminate the topic:

Arts, Entertainment & Culture | Breaking News | Leisure, Games & Sport | Maps, Places & Spaces | People, Language & Identity | Politics, Global & Humanitarian | Science & Technology | Unusual

Right now our team & judges are sifting through the showcase and pouring the creme de la creme into the Longlist which will be released on Tues 25 Sep. 

The showcase includes all eligible entries received by our deadline of Fri 14 Sep, 11.59pm PST. If you do or don't see your work as expected and need a change or have a question, please read "housekeeping notes" below.
