The Data Journalism Awards community has its own Slack team!

And what a team it is… So far made of over 350 data journalists from over 60 different countries, the Data Journalism Awards Slack team is the place to exchange, chat and share.

Every first Thursday of the month, we set up a monthly discussion with special guest speakers from the industry. We’ve already tackled topics such as holding the powerful accountable with data, environmental data journalism and working with crime and police data. These monthly chats were a real success, with participants from around the world joining the conversation.

All you have to do to take part (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.
