Data visualization has become an increasingly valuable way to explore and communicate information. Examples of "dataviz" abound in as many different styles as there are topics. One great place to look for recent work in this wide-ranging field is the Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards. These annual awards "celebrate excellence and beauty in data visualizations, infographics, interactives, and information art" and evaluate work on both "how well [it] suits the medium...[and] how well it illuminates the topic." In this interactive showcase, visitors can explore the 2018 winners, which are categorized by subject and include links to see each project in full. Here, readers can find work created by individuals as class assignments or side projects, such as Amy Cesal's DayDohViz in the unusual category, as well as work made by professional publication teams such as The Guardian and Bloomberg. Those interested can also view the shortlists, longlists, and winners from all previous years. The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards were founded in 2012 by data visualizer and journalist at Information is Beautiful David McCandless, in collaboration with Aziz Cami, then the creative director of the market research group Kantar.
