Drum Roll: The 2019 Longlist Is Out
The 2019 Information is Beautiful Awards Longlist has been selected out of the hundreds of entries in our glorious Showcase. Congratulations to everyone who made the cut - your talent and creativity is overwhelming, in the best way.
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.
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 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.
