Massive congratulations to the innovative, imaginative & intrepid winners of 2018’s global Information is Beautiful Awards – a celebration of the world’s best data-visualisations and infographics.
Trimming down 100 world-class shortlistees to a handful of exceptional winners was a fierce challenge for our panel of expert judges & community voters. Given such unrivalled ambition & scope – graphic novels, mosaics, even play-doh – this year’s accolades, trophies and $30k in cash prizes (courtesy of beloved sponsor Kantar) are very well deserved.
