Every year we celebrate the role that creative visualizations play in bringing data to life and addressing a range of global challenges.
LONDON, ENGLAND, November 21, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Prizes amounting to over $25,000 were awarded to winners across 10 categories, from News & Current Affairs, to Arts, Entertainment & Culture.
Each entry was judged by a panel of over 50 experts – including Hollywood producers, puppeteers, internationally-renowned data designers, journalists and artists. There was also a public vote, with voters advised to make their decision based on those infographics that demonstrated the best mix of information, function, story and visual beauty.
David McCandless, founder of Information is Beautiful, commented: "Every year we celebrate the role that creative visualizations play in helping to address a range of challenges, bringing data to life, while increasing awareness, demystifying research, and illustrating the gravity of global issues like gender inequality. This year we received some incredible nominations spanning topics from space exploration to the health of our oceans."
Among the winners are Alberto Lucas Lopez, who received the Impressive Individual prize for his work with National Geographic, including 'Plastic Profusion' and 'Migration Waves.' This year our Outstanding Outfit award went to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, for their highly ranked entries including Rich School, Poor School: Australia's Great Education Divide. Most Beautiful was awarded to the entry with the most adjusted entries between our judge and community voters: Explore the Ocean – Interactive Scientific Poster by Science Communication Lab: Interactive 3D animations and data visualizations explain marine science with a multi-touch display for passengers on board expedition ships.
