2014 Student Data Visualization Contest Winners

contest-reception-blog-01The second annual Duke Student Data Visualization Contest brought in another round of beautiful and insightful submissions from students across the university.  The judging panel of five members of the Duke community evaluated the submission based on insightfulness, broad appeal, aesthetics, technical merit, and novelty.  This year, the panel awarded a first place, second place, and two third place awards.

Each of these winners will be honored at a reception on Friday, April 4, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m, in the Brandaleone Center for Data and GIS Services (Perkins 226).  They will each receive a poster version of their projects and an Amazon gift card.  The winners and other submissions to the contest will soon be featured on the Duke Data Visualization Flickr Gallery.
