Back in March, we announced a visualization competition co-sponsored by Google and The Guardian Datastore. On Wednesdays in July, we highlighted several of the entries here on the blog.
Today, we're excited to announce the launch of a new competition: How transparent is world aid data? We're looking for visualizations that show how governments are shaping the Internet in relation to international development.
From Datastore's announcement today, which includes all the entry guidelines and details you need:
In particular, we are interested in questions like:
Should governments take censorship into account when they distribute foreign aid?
What does the current flow of information online/offline looks like vs. flow of foreign aid geographically?
What impact do sanctions have on the flow of information? How does that map against foreign aid?
How is international development affected by the free flow of information?
The announcement page includes links to some datasets under "Get some data" that are a great start. We look forward to seeing what you come up with! The contest is open now until November 26.
