WORLD DATA VISUALIZATION PRIZE
In partnership with
Information is Beautiful
 

We supply the themes. You provide creative, intuitive data-visualization that tell a story or reveal something interesting about data.

The winning works will receive cash prizes, international press coverage, and the chance to have your work exhibited to world leaders at the World Government Summit in February 2019.

The competition is open to anyone interested in design, data-analytics, and illustrative story-telling. Best of all, you don't need to be a designer or a creative professional to take part...
