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, Microsoft, and in partnership with Chartbeat.
Simon Rogers, Data Editor at Google News Lab, is the director of the 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 Data Journalism Awards competition are worth $1,801 (US) each and were awarded at a special ceremony in Lisbon during the annual GEN Summit on 31 May 2018.
