About the Vizzies
The National Science Foundation and Popular Science are cosponsors of the long-running Visualization Challenge, now called The Vizzies. The competition, which runs through Sept. 15, 2015, aims to recognize some of the most beautiful visualizations from the worlds of science and engineering.
Visualization Challenge participants can submit their entries in one or more of five categories: Photography, Video, Illustration, Posters & Graphics and Interactives. The Experts’ Choice winner in each category will be awarded $2,500, and the People’s Choice winner in each category will be awarded $500.
Expert judges appointed by NSF and Popular Science will select a winner (Experts’ Choice) in each of the five categories. People’s Choice winners will be determined by public votes.
Contest winners will be announced in February 2016, and will be featured in the March issue of Popular Science, on popsci.com and nsf.gov/news/Vizzies.
