Google will partner with the Global Editors Network to offer a new data journalism contest aimed at both “established news organisations and newcomers”.

The awards will offer a total prize fund for first-prize winners of $60,000 (£39,000) across six categories, including data-driven investigations, interactive data visualisations and data-driven mobile or web apps.

CEO of the Global Editors Network Bertrand Pecquerie added that the two organisations decided to offer the awards “because we consider data journalism will be part of our future, of journalism, of news production”.
