Information is Beautiful Awards 2023: The Winners
This past weekend, we welcomed over 150 attendees for two days filled with data visualization inspiration and celebrations.
The Day of Inspiration mini conference on Friday covered topics ranging from what a career in data viz looks like to communicating water quality data through sonic vibrations to questioning our data culture. Rest assured that if you missed some of the talks or want to revisit any of them, all talks have been recorded and will be uploaded to the DVS YouTube channel in the coming months. Make sure you’re following DVS on X (formerly Twitter), LinkedIn, and subscribed to the DVS newsletter (by joining as a member) so you know when they’re available.
The Awards Ceremony on Saturday revealed 27 category award winners out of 86 finalists and 13 winners across seven Special Awards. Winners traveled and tuned in from different parts of the world to receive their award and join the celebrations. This year, we received a staggering number of 900 submissions from over 50 countries and 485 unique creators; a true testament to the diversity of perspectives and skills from the data visualization community.
We hope you had the chance to attend either by joining in Baltimore, online, or via a local watch party. In case you missed it, you can browse the 2023 winning entries in the showcase.
