Sigma Awards - Google News Initiative
01/14/22 11:59 PM ET
Awards to USA, Canada, and International journalists and newsrooms to recognize outstanding work in data journalism. Entries may include but are not limited to the following topics: the environment, sports, politics, and the pandemic. Awardees will receive a monetary prize, a certificate, and speaking opportunities.
The Sigma Awards is a competition to celebrate the best data journalism from around the world. Striding into its third year, it’s also here to empower, elevate and enlighten the global community of data journalists.
This year’s Sigma Awards will be about highlighting the very best data journalism done about the pandemic (and building an international database record of such projects), but also those covering other topics such as politics, sports, or the environment.
Winners will be brought together to participate in and lead online data journalism panels, discussions and workshops.
They will not only learn from each other, but will be reaching out to the broader community of data journalists and would-be data journalists, building relationships that will help spark better collaborations and work around the world.
