This is Visual Journalism [59]

Special edition dedicated to the awarded infographics at Malofiej 22

April 3, 2014

As we mentioned before, today’s edition of This is Visual Journalism is dedicated to the 22nd Malofiej Infographic Awards, specially in the print categories.

The jury had to go through more than 1,200 entries from 139 media companies across 34 countries, to give 17 gold medals, 50 silver medals, and 90 bronze medals, in print and online categories combined (read the full press release, for more information). The New York Times left Malofiej 22 as the great winner, taking home 39 medals and the Peter Sullivan Award – Best of Show Printed and Best of Show Online. The Guardian’s NSA Files: Decoded has established itself definitively as one of the great works of 2013, with a Gold Medal to add to previous awards.

But let’s focus our attention in the print categories. A total of 86 medals were given to printed entries (9 gold, 26 silver and 51 bronze medals). The New York Times, South China Morning Post, National Geographic Magazine, Clarín (Argentina) and the Times of Oman all took home a Gold Medal, and National Geographic Magazine won the “Miguel Urabayen Award” for the best map for printed category with ‘Drilling the Prairie’. The portfolios of IL/Si Premiun (Italy), El Correo (Spain) and the work of Adolfo Arranz at the South China Morning Post were also recognized with the gold in the Portfolio category.

Of course, there were a lot of remarkable works awarded, besides the Gold medalists. Like we did last year, we picked some of the awarded infographics of Malofiej22 to feature in this special post, many of which have already been presented in this same space. Once again, congratulations to all the winners and medalists, and you can check out the full list of awarded graphics here.

Enjoy the ride!
