360Giving Challenge Fund Launches

Our friends over at 360Giving have recently launched their Challenge Fund. They are inviting anyone with an interest in design, analytics or data journalism to turn the 360Giving dataset into original visualisations, so that maximum value of the dataset can be unlocked.

The £20,000 prize fund will award prizes of between £2,000 and £6,000 to the top three entries. And, depending on the volume and quality of the submissions received, 360 also intend to make an award of between £100 and £500 to each entry that meets the submission criteria – so they can reward as many people as possible for their efforts. The new Challenge website has all the information you need, including rules, closing dates and what you need to include in your submission. They’re looking for creative, innovative ideas that use the dataset in new and interesting ways. If you think you may have what it takes, why not submit your idea?
