Submissions are now open for the Data Journalism Awards 2015! We received 520 submissions in 2014 and we hope to beat our record this year.
What's new this season?
- Simon Rogers, Data Editor at Twitter, is the new DJA Director and five new jury members have joined for 2015. Paul Steiger will serve as President of the Jury.
- We have introduced new categories to recognise the development and innovation in data journalism. A Public's Choice prize will also be awarded.
- Submissions will be reviewed monthly by a pre-jury. Five to ten projects per month will be shortlisted and submitted to the jury in April 2015.
- The fourth annual Data Journalism Awards will culminate with the DJA Ceremony to showcase the best of data journalism worldwide. Don't miss this event to be held on 18 June 2015 during the GEN Summit in Barcelona.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 10 April 2015, but don't wait until the last minute: the best projects will be shortlisted each month, giving you a better chance to be selected!
You will submit your project on our new platform, the GEN Community. This recently launched community already has over 1,000 media innovators and over 350 projects to discover. To submit your project you will need 10-15 minutes.
