Emarat Al Youm won two excellence awards for its "Falconry: the noble sport" and "Big accident in Abu Dhabi" infographics.

Luis Chumpitaz, Infographic Director, Arab Media Group, said: "The main feature of a successful infographic is its ability to explain the story without the need to read the text."
