Guardian University awards winner 2019

We are delighted that our ‘The State of the States’ collaboration with The London School of Economics US Centre has picked up a prestigious Guardian University Award in the digital innovation category.

With such a lot of attention into the current state of US politics, the portal is a content-rich resource for anyone interested in exploring the political landscape of America. Users can access detailed information and insights for each of the 50 states along with the very latest news, blogs, policies and political developments.


The interactive map with colour coded views immediately highlights the latest developments, covering a wide range of topics including civil rights, climate change, state governments and election results. Since its launch towards the end of last year, the portal is proving popular with audiences across the globe.

"This award is a reflection of the hard work and creativity of the team at SOAK, and how a fantastic partnership with the London School of Economics has resulted in a project that we can all be proud of."

Jim Havers - SOAK Creative Director
