Open Call: Insight Map and Visualization Competition


Insight is a new competition for artists and data scientists to blend data with design to make invisible forces visible in innovative and critical ways, in partnership with CartoDB (popular data visualization and digital mapping company) and Storefront for Art and Architecture (legendary organization committed to the intersections of architecture, art, and design). Winners of Insight will be displayed at Storefront’s newest exhibit, Measure, in NYC from August 14th to September 12th, 2015, as well as the chance to collaborate with CartoDB on future projects.

To enter, participants are asked to submit a map or visualization that merges information design with cultural and spatial insight (with the help of CartoDB’s platform). Submissions must be entered by September 1. Check out this page for more detail on the submission process.

With the competition, CartoDB aims to elevate the map-making community and celebrate beautifully insightful projects and inspire the community to create and share work around the measurable and immeasurable.

Full details on the competition can be found here, including submission criteria, important dates, panel of judges, and other resources.
