Get ready to be blown away...the entries for the 2020 Iron Viz global qualifier contest are in! This year, we challenged you to visualize data on the topic of health and wellness, and we received a record number of 372 entries—86% of which were submitted by first-time participants.
Over the next several weeks, the judges will review the submissions and score them according to the following criteria:
- Design: How appropriate is the design for the story that is being told?
- Storytelling: Is there a clear story being told or question being explored, and is there appropriate context?
- Analysis: How sophisticated and appropriate is the data that is being used for the story?
The three finalists of the global qualifier contest will advance to the virtual Iron Viz Championship for a chance to win up to $10,000! For more information on prizes, please visit the contest page. Please note,Tableau has decided to reimagine Tableau in-person events in new and virtual ways through 2020. As a result, the 2020 Iron Viz championship will be a virtual event held later this October (details not yet finalized).
