Data Journalism Awards - Startup Lisboa award for investigation of the year


Startup Lisboa is partnering with this year’s edition of the Data Journalism Awards (DJA), a competition organized by the Global Editors Network to celebrate and credit outstanding work in the field of data-driven journalism worldwide.

Startup Lisboa will award the prize for ‘Investigation of the Year’, attributed to the “best data-driven investigation, which uses data collection and analysis to disclose or bring light on a topic of public interest”. 

The 12 competitive DJA categories include distinctions such as ‘Best Data Journalism Team‘, ‘Innovation in Data Journalism‘ and ‘Data journalism website of the year’.

Startup Lisboa as an incubator for technology-based companies and for its role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem is honored to join an initiative that recognizes the role of innovation and technology in providing information and empowering citizens to better understand the global world and the most diverse social realities.

The prizes for the Data Journalism Awards competition will be awarded at a ceremony in Lisbon on the 31st of May, during the annual GEN Summit, the Global Editors Network’s flagship event, that takes place in Lisbon (Pátio da Galé) from 30th May to 1st June.

This year Gen Summit will gather more than 800 participants from journalism, media, and technology, to discuss the future of news based on how artificial intelligence, voice interfaces, or blockchain can impact the newsrooms, improve their efficiency and the engagement with audiences.

The DJA competition received 630 submissions from 58 countries, which is according to the organization “the highest number of applications to the competition since its launch in 2012”.
