Malofiej24: The Awards

March 14, 2016

Last week I attended the 24th edition of the Malofiej Infographics World Summit in Pamplona, Spain. It was an incredible week: I met some really great people and as a member of the Awards jury I got inspired by seeing literally hundreds of illustrations and data visualizations, online and on paper.


As you can see in this picture, I was part of the jury evaluating the paper entries of the competition. A great experience and I learned a lot from it, but as a mostly online journalist I was also very curious about the medals awarded in the online competition.

The official list of the awards was published as a pdf and is sorted by category. I sorted the list of the online medal winners by medal color (gold, silver and bronze) and grouped the medals by media. I think this is a little more convenient for browsing all the winners.

So here is the list:
