Awards alert: Statistical excellence in journalism

THE STATISTICAL excellence in journalism award, brought to you by the Royal Statistical Society and sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council, recognises excellence in "journalists' use of numbers to tell a story" in any work in English completed in 2020.

There are categories this year in data visualisation, investigative journalism and a new statistical excellence in coronavirus reporting category for our times.

The deadline for entries is 22 March 2021. Details are here.

The award itself is a glass trophy and the winners will be wined and dined at an awards ceremony in July, by which time awards ceremonies are face-to-face again.
