Create a Pulitzer Category for Data Visualizations

To be delivered to Pulitzer Prize Board

Petition Statement

I call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to create a new category for Data Visualizations to help advance this important type of journalism.
There are currently 28 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

Nate Silver said it best: the people creating these visualizations "are journalists in addition to being programmers and/or graphic artists: the goal is to communicate complex information clearly and accurately, and not just to make something cool or pretty. There should be a Pulitzer category for this stuff."
