For fans of data visualizations, the online magazine The Pudding recently announced the winners of its 2018 Pudding Cup, which honors "[t]he best visual and data-driven stories." Selected by a team of data visualization experts, these visualizations fall into two categories. The Pay Tier honors websites created on the job, while the more eclectic Passion Tier highlights "stories created for fun, a side project, class, etc." One of the Passion Tier honorees is Eric Lin's Casting Shakespeare, which presents information about the age, gender, and race of actors cast in Shakespearean productions since 1900. Meanwhile, the Pay Tier highlights How to Forecast an American's Vote, an interactive created by Martin Gonzalez, Dan Rosenheck, Evan Hensleigh, and Matt McLean for The Economist that highlights U.S. voting behavior by factors including age, geography, and income. In total, the list highlights 28 different projects that address topics ranging from K-pop to exoplanets to the advent of spring.
