The New York Times wins
The Peter Sullivan Award

Pamplona - For the first time in its 15 year history, the highest honor of the Malofiej International Infographic Awards, the Peter Sullivan Prize, goes exclusively to an online entry: The New York Times for its interactive feature Sector Snapshot, which analyzes daily behavior by sector of the companies in the major stock indexes. The jury awards this prize each year to the best of the work presented in the competition. Read the release in Spanish here.

The winners were announced Friday during the closing ceremony of the 15th Malofiej World Infographics Summit, organized by SND's Spanish Chapter (SNDE) and the Faculty of Communication at the Universidad de Navarra. The jury was chaired by Dave Gray from XPLANE.

"It's excellent. It's innovate. It's creative. It's a new type of online graphic based on databases that will change daily," said juror Ramon Salaverria, from the communications faculty at the Universidad de Navarra.

"We talked a lot about what makes an infographic, but this one did more: It really becomes an analytical piece of software," said juror Don Wittekind, from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. "I have just never seen anything like it before."

In addition to the Peter Sullivan Prize, The New York Times also was honored with two other Gold medals, one in print and another online.

The jury awarded 12 Gold medals in all. Other Gold winners were Clarin (Argentina), Expresso (Portugal), San Jose Mercury News (U.S.), The Oregonian, (U.S.), Dagens Nyheter (Sweden), The Guardian (UK), Welt am Sonntag (Germany), Mundo Estranho (Brazil) and National Geographic (U.S.).

The jury awarded the Miguel Urabayen "Best Map" award to Welt am Sonntag for its work explaining in detail the migration of Germans after World War II.
