Striding into its second year, the Sigma Awards celebrates the best data journalism from around the world. It’s also here to empower, elevate and enlighten the global community of data journalists.
The Sigma Awards is the only international data journalism award which aims to not just celebrate the best data journalism around the world, but also to empower, elevate and enlighten the global community of data journalists.
The mission of The Sigma Awards is:
- To highlight the very best data journalism being done around the world;
- To build programs and resources around the awards that enable people in and out of the data journalism community to learn from this work;
- To use the awards as a way to unite, galvanize and expand data journalism communities around the world.
Core to this project is The Sigma Awards team’s ambition to bring the data journalists from around the world together to share expertise and ideas, inspire each other, and build a community that endures beyond the awards themselves.
The team behind Sigma Awards consists of co-chairs Aron Pilhofer (Temple University) and Reginald Chua (Reuters), managing director Simon Rogers (Google), executive director Marianne Bouchart (HEI-DA) and competition officer Kuek Ser Kuang Keng. It is sponsored by the Google News Initiative.
