I’ve just returned from an exhausting and exhilarating week in Pamplona, Spain where I attended the Malofiej World Infographic Summit. Malofiej is one–if not the–premier infographic award competitions in the world. The first few days of the week are set aside to judge entries, which are split into two categories, one for print and the other for online. The last two days of the week are for the actual Summit in which speakers talk about issues relevant to the field (if you’ve been following this blog for the last few weeks, you won’t be surprised to hear that I talked about storytelling).

I was honored to be asked to serve as one of 5 judges for the online entries (the print entries were reviewed by 9 judges). We reviewed 899 entries over the course of 4 days and awarded 89 medals overall: 54 Bronze, 27 Silver, 4 Golds, plus 4 “special” awards. We also awarded a “Best of Show”.

It was an incredible experience and I plan on writing more about it, some of the talks, and some other ideas in the coming weeks. For now, I wanted to share the links to the online winners (the full list including the print winners can also be found at the Malofiej website in PDF format). Others have created nicer (and sortable) lists (here and here for starters), so take a look at those as well.

Congratulations to all for a remarkable year of work!
