For the first time in nine years of existence, we have submitted our projects to an awards competition. We sent six of them, covering the last three years, to the Information is Beautiful Awards, revived this year by the Data Visualization Society.
ALL SIX made it onto the longlist.
We were surprised and pleased, but not as much as when we heard the next news…
THREE of them made it on the shortlist.
Out of 1250 submissions, only 90 projects are on the shortlist. We are elated to be represented three times in this select group. This places us in the top 3 of the organizations with the most nominations.
The next step is the ceremony in Washington DC on November 30th. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be distributed in each category. We will be attending and presenting one of the three projects to the dataviz community during the lightning talks.
Here are our three finalist projects:
1. The misunderstood role of water in conflict
2. The star of our work
3. A portfolio of inclusive business
We are also very proud of the three projects that are not finalists but made it onto the long list. Here they are.
The health costs of climate change
Networking the start-ups
Our client studied the network of business start-ups in Tokyo and compared it to that of other cities. Then they passed on their analysis, report and graphs to us and asked us to clarify and improve them in any way we could. These beautiful network graphs, and more, came out of it.
The transition to a low-carbon world
A greener world calls for a different economy. What does it look like in the Canadian context, who are the winners and losers, and how can we prepare for it?
Getting this far exceeds all of our expectations. Because good work comes from good collaboration, we are grateful to each other and to our clients. Now let’s see what will happen on November 30th.
