OpenDataPhilly Launches Visualization Contest

OpenDataPhilly Launches Visualization Contest is undergoing a redesign thanks in part to grant funding from the Knight Foundation.  In anticipation of the relaunch of Philadelphia’s newly designed data portal, Azavea invites submissions of visualizations of Philadelphia’s open data.

The OpenDataPhilly Visualization Contest calls on designers, data scientists, developers and anyone who enjoys exploring and visualizing open data. You are invited to share your data visualization that utilizes open data found on Your visualization can be static or interactive and may include maps, infographics, charts or any other creative visualization of data.

Up to 10 data visualizations will be selected to be featured on OpenDataPhilly’s new website.  Prizes include $500 in Amazon gift cards to be divided among winners. Additional data visualizations may be selected for display on the OpenDataPhilly web site but only a maximum of 10 will receive prizes.  The contest is international and open to anyone. The data visualization must use open data available on The deadline to submit is Sunday, November 30th 2014 11:59pm.
