A belated announcement, especially for those who've not heard on social media, as well as a more public thank you following last week's news that I had won the silver medal for the 'Best Dataviz Website' category of the 2016 Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards.

Following last year's gold award to come away with another medal this year is super news in a very competitive category. I'm really thankful to the judges and public for their votes but also, inevitably, all the visitors, sharers, commenters and contributors to this site over the past year.

I wasn't able to attend the event in person but thankfully Thomas Clever was in town and willing to receive the trophy on my behalf!


I will repeat what I said last year, the content you see on this site is shaped by the outstanding work and the outstanding people out there. And on that note, congratulations to all the other award winners across the various categories, as you'll see here there have been some brilliant achievements.
