The Sigma Awards Projects Database

Welcome to our special place where we list the best of data journalism from around the world.

When people apply to the Sigma Awards, they are required to share more than a description of their work. We ask about the technologies used, the impact reached, the challenges encountered, and more. We also gather data on countries and organizations represented.

We believe this information can be very valuable to other members of the data journalism community. That’s why we are sharing it with you in a usable format.

If you want to suggest changes or functionalities, flag some UX issues, or else, just get in touch.

Congratulations to our 2021 winners!

Our pre-jury and jury of experts has spoken and selected 13 winners of the 2021 competition. They’ve also awarded 7 citations to outstanding works from around the world. Together they represent the best data journalism of the past year.

We received a total of 545 projects from 68 countries this year. 140 made it to the shortlist. 13 won and 7 got citations. Thanks to the interactive database below (in beta), you can sort out entries by region, or team size. You can also download the full data from 2020-2021 in a readable format on GitHub via the link below (yes, we’re like that).
