The 2019 Black Data Project Contest is an opportunity for students to show off their visualizations and draw attention to their projects. Data visualizations may include everything from charts and graphs to maps to data art to 3d models and can be static, animated, or web-based interactive stories.
The submissions will be judged in two ways: judge’s rating and popularity. Each submission will be posted on the Information Technology Institute will judge the submitted visualizations based on their ability to communicate insightful information, their overall design, technical merit and originality. The rules are simple: you need to reimagine one of W.E.B. Du Bois’s charts for the 1900 World Fair. Your work cannot distort the data or malign the subjects or the original creator. Image files submitted for entry must no larger than 1200px x 800px, and adhere to the following name convention: YourFirstName_YourLastName_VizTitle (for example: John_Doe_WeatherMap).
If the visualization is dynamic, please provide a screenshot and hyperlink.
