Ways of communicating research are changing. New technology has led to great advances in how people access information, but also in how people can present research in a visually engaging format.

This competition is funded by the Open Society Foundation’s Think Tank Fund

As such, On Think Tanks is pleased to announce the first data visualisation competition for think tanks in developing countries sponsored by the Think Tank Fund of the Open Society Foundations. The competition aims to encourage these think tanks to explore alternative methods for communicating research and to promote the development of the skills required to produce them.

The competition ran three rounds plus a final from July 2013 – January 2014. Each round combined public voting with a final selection from an expert judging panel.
