Hot Topics in 2019

Inequalities & Disparities

Many entries on this year's Longlist examine inequalities in how we live, work & drive - even in the instruments we play. These works explore the damning data with a keen eye for the racial, cultural & systemic factors that give rise to these conditions.


Hong Kong

The protests in Hong Kong have captured the news cycle this year. Our creators explore the conditions on the ground - from skyrocketing housing costs, to the intricacies of measuring mass movements, to differences in how the rule of law is applied in HK & China.



The world's democracies have been under close scrutiny lately - and that is reflected in our Longlist, with projects covering elections in the EU, US, Brazil, UK & India.



The final frontier is a perennial topic of fascination, and this year's Longlist is no exception. We have projects celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions & the 30th anniversary of the Soviet shuttle "Buran", a catalogue of space junk, a comprehensive space atlas - even a guide, if you're so inclined, on how to profit in space.
