Iron Viz Books and Literature - Vote for the Crowd Favorite

Posted by Florian Ramsegeron May 14, 2018

The first feeder for this year’s Iron Viz Global competition is now closed. We had asked the community to send us their best vizzes on the topic of “Books and Literature”, and you didn’t let us down: 60 fantastic vizzes were submitted.

The panel of judges will need a few days to select a winner from this pool of talented data viz authors. In the meantime take a look at the full list of vizzes below…and vote for your favorite viz to help us decide the “Crowd Favorite”. Here is how it works:

  • Click on the images below to view the interactive viz.
  • Click the star button in the top-right to "favorite" those vizzes that you deem worthy of the crowd favorite title. If prompted, log in with your Tableau Public credentials.
  • The Tableau Public team will tally all the favorites before close of business on Friday, 18 May. The winner will be announced along with the grand winners early next week.
