The 2007 “Pulitzers for infographics” are here.
And for the first time in its 15 year history, the Malofiej International Infographic Awards has presented the Peter Sullivan Prize exclusively to an online entry: The New York Times wins for its interactive feature Sector Snapshot, which analyzes daily behavior by sector of the companies in the major stock indexes.
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.).

Peter Sullivan worked at The Sunday Times for many years with no computers, but he was a great graphic storyteller.
Today, he would be more than happy to use all these new multimedia tools.
Something that traditional graphic journalists must do.
