2015 Finalists

We are delighted to announce the Open Data Awards 2015 finalists. As you will see they come from across the world and represent issues from malaria and democracy to the internet of things and finance.

Congratulations to all the finalists! The judges had an incredibly difficult job, as you’ll see from the shortlist and original nominations. There are some amazing stories to be found across all the nominations, and we would encourage you to take time to look through.

The winners were announced on 9 July by Sirs Tim Berners-Lee and Nigel Shadbolt.
