About the DJA 2017

Started in 2012, the competition is organised by the Global Editors Network, with support from the Google News Lab, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and in partnership with Chartbeat. Previous winning organisations include BuzzFeed, Quartz, The New York Times, The Guardian, ProPublica, La Nación as well as smaller organisations such as Ojo Publico, Civio Foundation and Convoca. Simon Rogers, Data Editor at Google News Lab, is the director of the DJA competition which takes place under the presidency of Paul Steiger, Executive Chairman of ProPublica’s board of directors. Marianne Bouchart is the manager of the competition. The prizes for the DJA competition are worth $1,801 (US) each and will be awarded at a special ceremony at the Vienna City Hall during the seventh annual GEN Summit on 22 June 2017. 

But why a $1801 cash prize?

Because it’s in 1801 that the pie chart was allegedly created by William Playfair. Plus, we wanted a fun fact to joke about! Feel like knowing more about pie charts through history? Check out this link.
