Jeff Knezovich from On Think Tanks will be experimenting with a live blog during the three-day Cartagena Data Festival. You're welcome to follow along.
Note that the blog will be updated as frequently as possible, but it is dependent on Internet connectivity and whether Jeff is participating in other sessions. Apologies in advance for any typos.
Today, at the Cartagena Data Festival in Colombia, On Think Tanks launched the 2014–15 compilation of the #ttdatavis competition. The compilation, and the competition more widely, aims to inspire think tanks and similar organisations by showcasing real world examples of impactful data visualisation. It also contains useful resources and 'how tos' to support think tanks to develop their own visualisations.
The process for choosing winners for this third and final round of the 2014-15 On Think Tanks Data Visualisation Competition has been a complicated one. As we explained in a previous post, we didn't hold a public vote for this round because we felt it required a bit deeper reflection than a quick click could afford.
Given the complexity of this round, and following much conversation among the judges, we have decided that opening the round to public voting does not seem appropriate.
We're pleased to announce that Round 3 of the On Think Tanks Data Visualisation Competition is now open for submissions. Submit your data visualisation and communication strategy now!
This third and final round of the 2014-15 competition is focused on finding data visualisations that have been most successfully used as part of a wider communication strategy.
