The Financial Times today launched a series of spectacular 3D infographics created in collaboration with data visualist, David McCandless, author of Information is Beautiful.
Bloggers and members of the press descended on New York’s Grand Central Terminal at 8.30am to watch Gillian Tett introduce the exhibit, which focused on three core themes: The US and the global economy, the mobile technology revolution & the global recovery.
The Financial Times has established the Jones-Mauthner Memorial Prize, an award to recognise outstanding reporting of international affairs by an FT journalist under 40. The award is being funded by current and former FT journalists and will consist of a first prize of £5,000 and a second prize of £2,000.
This honour will encourage the tradition of excellence exemplified by its namesakes, the late JDF Jones and Robert Mauthner. Jones, who served as foreign editor and the first editor of FT Weekend, was the driving force behind the expansion of the FT’s foreign network of journalists, which today boasts over 600 correspondents in every corner of the globe. Mauthner was a distinguished Paris correspondent, diplomatic editor and European analyst.
