Datastory.org is a new platform for data storytelling. We want to make the world’s most important information available for free through beautiful apps and stories. You can find some of our previous work here and on Twitter
In this first edition of the “Datastory Summer Challenge” we want to see your vision and bold ideas come to life. The theme is "visualizing humanity" and we encourage you to rethink the connection between data + usability and add your creativity to the mix!
Use any tool of your liking to develop a sketch or prototype that combines data and design. It can be a story, app, simulation, game, video, poster, art installation or other format, as long as it is focused on visualizing one or more aspects of humanity such as our history, biology, arts, technology, economy, politics etc.
The following criteria are used to select the winner:
How much impact, in terms of social good, could your idea have in the digital or offline world
How user-friendly is your idea – does it meet user needs?
How well does your idea make use of data – preferably open data – from one or multiple sources? (Can be any type of data such as statistics, images, text etc.)
How well does your idea combine text, interactivity, illustration and/or animation into a coherent whole
