The Data Journalism Awards Slack Team

Our data journalism community has its own Slack team!

And what a team it is… So far made of over 600 data journalists from over 60 different countries, the Data Journalism Awards Slack team is the place to exchange, chat and share.

To celebrate the Data Journalism Awards competition, we set up monthly discussions on the Data Journalism Awards Slack team. We’ve already tackled topics such as “Holding the powerful accountable using data”, “sports data journalism”, “working with environmental data”, and more, with participants from around the world joining the conversation.

All you have to do to take part in the discussions (and catch up on previous discussions) is fill the following form to receive your invite to our Slack team. You can also get the form here.

If you have any questions, email Marianne Bouchart, Manager of the competition at

The next Slack chat will take place on 13 December 2018 and mark the launch of season 8 of the competition. We’ll gather members of the jury for a discussion on where data journalism is going these days and what challenges they see data teams facing in 2019. Plus we’ll talk about the launch of the competition and what expectations they have this year. More info below…
