World Water Day Visualization Challenge!

From Visualizing.org.

In celebration of the upcoming World Water Day, we’ve partnered with Circle of Blue (the leading news organization reporting on global water issues) to host a rapid-fire call to designers, data experts, and visualizers to tap into the world’s stream of water data.

The theme of the challenge is urban water and we’ve provided a wealth of water data (in Google Fusion Tables!) for you to visualize. We’re offering a $5,000 cash prize and the chance to clarify the data in order to help water institutes propose effective solutions to the growing water problems in cities around the world.

Timeline:

This is a rapid-fire competition

Deadline: March 15, 2011

Announcement: March 22, 2011 (World Water Day). Winning visualizations will be disseminated to the media and water institutes – all around great exposure!

Prize:

$5,000 to the winner

Jury:

A panel of high-profile water experts, data experts, and information designers. Check out our page for the final Jury which will be posted at the end of the week.
