This week has been all about the 2015 GEN Summit, and , of course, the Data Journalism Awards. The winners were announced yesterday at the DJA Awards Ceremony at CosmoCaixa, selected from among 78 finalists. We showed you some of the shortlisted projects using data visualization a month ago, and today we open this edition of Interactive Inspiration with the winning projects in those categories.
We’ve also shared with you a bit of the story behind some of the finalist in the Portfolio categories, such as Kiln.it, Berliner Morgenpost, Charlotte Thornton (BBC), and John Burn-Murdoch (Financial Times), and we’ll keep on doing it even after the end of the event. The winners in these categories were Rob Barry from The Wall Street Journal (Best Individual Portfolio), and Al Jazeera America’s Michael Keller (General Excellence, Jurors’ Choice)
And before we move on to our list of featured projects, we’d like to also call your attention to the shortlisted projects for the Open Data Awards 2015, that were announced recently. You can check the 2015 shortlist here.
