October 18, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

While we wait for the winners of the Online Journalism Awards to be announced (only a few hours left), another data visualization challenge has released the longlist of selected projects: the Kantar Information Is Beautiful Awards.

The Awards were set up in 2012 by David McCandless, journalist and datavisualizer, in collaboration with Aziz Kami, Creative Director at Kantar. In this second edition, there were 5 categories (data visualization, Interactive, Motion Infographic, Infographics and Tools) and we decided to dedicate this edition of Interactive Inspiration to some of the projects selected precisely in the Interactive category.
