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.

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.
We've already got some great entries to share, but we know there are a lot more examples out there! We also know it's a busy time of year. As such, we've decided to extend the submission deadline by one week. The new timeline for the Round is as below.
In the first round of the 2014-15 On Think Tanks Data Visualisation Competition, we limited entries only to static visualisations. Static visualisations could be anything from a simple bar chart to a multi-part infographic that combines a number of data points to tell a cohesive story.
Our diverse panel of judges have reviewed the top six data visualisations as determined by the public vote. And the judges were able to come to a clear agreement on the winner and the runner up for this round. So without further ado, the winner of Round 1 and of the US$1500 prize is...
The wait is over! The On Think Tanks Data Visualisation Competition is back in a newer -- and better -- incarnation for the 2014-15 season. We've been busy behind the scenes completely reworking the website. In particular, we've made a big effort to build out the Resources section of the website. And the competition itself has changed in three important ways: it's now open to any think tank anywhere in the world, we've targeted the rounds to separate static and interactive ones and have a new category for best use of a data visualisation as part of a communication strategy, and we've added new partners.
