Simon Rogers, the Director of the DJA 2015, said: “It has been such an honour to be DJA director this year. We have seen hundreds of entries from around the world, big news organisations and small ones. It shows how established data journalism is as a global phenomenon. Journalists everywhere are using data to tell stories, regardless of resources and staffing.

“The winners really showcase the best of that work. The DJA is still a unique award: the only truly global data journalism prize, awarded by a jury of the best in the business. The winners should feel truly proud that they are producing data journalism that is the best in the world.
