About Sigma Awards 2024

It’s the end of the year, and you know what that means. Before you start thinking about Christmas carols, snow trips, and December office dinners, let us share some cheerful news. The Sigma Awards for data journalism are back again. We’re delighted to start the hunt for 2023’s best data projects. You send your work, we compile it, review it, and the most outstanding wins.

Program Details

But we need your help. It’s time to look back at the year that has past, and select the top data-driven journalism you’ve published. Whether you’re on your own, in a small newsroom, or part of a bigger team, we want to know what are the best data projects you’ve worked on this year.


  • Entries must be for work published in calendar year 2023 (between 1 January 2023 and 31 December 2023)
  • Entries have to be submitted via our online form.
  • Entries have to be received by January 17th, 2024 at 11:59pm ET, to qualify.
  • Applicants can enter as many projects as they want.
  • Entries have to specify if they qualify as a large or a small newsroom or as an individual, where applicable. Small newsrooms are defined as those with 35 or fewer journalists (including regular freelancers/contractors), or equivalent (eg, two half-time freelancers count as one person.)
  • Organizations that do not qualify under this definition but who believe they belong in the small newsroom category may petition for an exception by sending a letter from the editor-in-chief explaining his or her rationale to Marianne Bouchart, executive director at
  • Collaborative work has to be entered as a large newsroom.
  • Entering organizations grant The Sigma Awards the right to use their material in their entry, including the organization’s name and logo, on The Sigma Awards website and other marketing material around the awards.
  • 2023 has been another special year for all members of the data journalism community, and we expect to receive a large number of entries tackling the ongoing conflicts in Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and other parts of the world. However, we’d like to specify that all data journalism projects, regardless of their topics, can be entered into the competition.
