Last week, the world information graphics community convened in Pamplona, Spain, for the 21st annual Malofiej International Infographics Summit and Awards, organized by the Spanish chapter of the Society for News Design.
Scientific American won 3 bronze medals in the print category, for “Exoplanets Everywhere” (print version below, web-formatted version here), “Space Age Wasteland” (print version below, web-formatted version here), and a 5-page portfolio of the Graphic Science department page—including the 2 pages listed above, as well as “Tag—You’re Sick” (web-formatted version here), “Americans Get Fatter, Drunker” (web-formatted version here), and “Water In, Water Out” (web-formatted version here).
Best of Show awards were bestowed upon National Geographic (“An Army for the Afterlife,” print), and the New York Times (“Lolo Jones, Cleared for Takeoff,” online). The Miguel Urabayen awards for best map went to the New York Times (“Counties Blue and Red Move to the Right,” print) and ProPublica (“Stateface,” online).
Over 1,000 entries from 154 media companies across 28 countries participated in the contest. In total, 21 gold medals, 52 silver medals, and 74 bronze medals were awarded in print and online categories combined.
