Malofiej 'Best of Show'

Every year, the Spanish chapter of the Society for News Design hosts Malofiej, an international infographics competition and conference. It is held at the University of Navarra, in Pamplona, Spain and is the “Oscars” or “Pulitzers” for the field of journalistic information design. The awards were announced yesterday at the 18th Infographics World Summit.

‘Best of Show’ went to the Swedish newspaper, Svenska Dagbladet, for the interactive graphic by Thomas MolĂ©n, How did Europe vote in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest 2008. It’s a visualization of the voting by Eastern-bloc vs. Western bloc-countries in the song contest, whose outcome is seen as having become more politically, rather than “artistically” determined. I highly recommend the interactive version here. Other award-winning graphics can be seen here.

  1. This is so awesome! I happen to be a huge fan of Eurovision and the topic every year is how political the voting is. Is there any chance to get a translation (although it's pretty intuitive as is)
