Submissions for the Data Journalism Awards 2018 competition are now closed. The deadline to apply was 26 March 2018 at 23:59GMT.
There was absolutely no limit to the number of projects you could submit. But only one entry could be submitted for the same project/story. If you felt your project would fit in several categories, you’d need to pick wisely. Not to worry though, if the jury feels it fits better in an other category, they will make the change during their voting process.
Yes, you could submit your projects separately, each in only one category, and also include it as part of a “portfolio” category where up to ten links are accepted.
The Data Journalism Awards 2018 application form needed to be filled in English. Any form filled in a language other than English will not be considered by our jury.
If your project is originally in a language other than English, you did not have to translate the entire piece, but you were required to submit a presentation of the project written in English. Components of graphics, apps and other interactives needed to be translated to English so that our Jury of international experts can assess your work fairly.
If you have any questions, email Marianne Bouchart, Data Journalism Awards Manager, at email@example.com
You should have submitted only one form including a maximum of 10 links, so you had to pick wisely!
Yes! A picture (jpeg, jpg, or png format) in good quality was required for every entry.
There was a special section in the form where you could add a video url (not a video file though) to support your application.
All the information submitted in the form may be published on the Data Journalism Awards website and viewable by members of the public. You could send documents or information you did not wish to share with the world (only with our jury made of international experts) to support your applications, directly via email, to Marianne Bouchart, manager of the competition at firstname.lastname@example.org .
