- The Data Journalism Awards competition celebrates outstanding work in the field of data journalism worldwide. It can be won by any media organisation, big or small.
- The awards are given to examples of data-driven investigations, data-driven applications and storytelling projects that use data visualisation, to cover topics relevant to the general public and aiming at having an impact on society.
- Media companies, non-profit organisations and freelancers or individuals are all eligible for the Data Journalism Awards. Works produced by individuals or teams of staffers from media companies and non-profit organisations, as well as freelancers or individuals are all eligible for entry.
- Works that are the result of collaboration between organisations may also be submitted. Works produced by staffers or freelancers collaborating with government agencies, business or trade organisations with a stake (financial or of other nature) in the issue at hand are not eligible. In other words, the awards are not given to business data visualisations or projects produced for branding purposes.
- Works that include significant input from the members of the jury will not be accepted for entry into the competition.
- The DJA administrators have the final authority to determine whether an entry is eligible or not.

- Entries in languages other than English will be accepted provided that they are accompanied by thorough explanations of the work in English and a translation if possible.
