Fun & Games

The pursuit of leisure and fun is vital. You can make a game out oflearning data visualisation charts. Or, maybe you prefer cycling, or playing football with friends? In any case, we recommend spending time with your nearest furry friend pronto - a dog is the best teacher in how to relax and enjoy the moment.

Have you gazed at the night sky lately? These visualisations will come in handy next time you go star-gazing - or you can impress your friends with your knowledge of the cultural history of constellations

Public Health

Iib -shortlist -theme -3

The Shortlist features useful tools to help you visualise cancer search trends, and understand the lifetime costs of healthcare. Public health isn't just about illness though - violence claims enough lives to be considered an epidemic in many parts of the world.

Earth & The Environment

Iib -shortlist -theme -4

Extreme weather and the sustainability of our oceans affect us all, whether we realize it or not. When we know more, we can do more - dataviz creators are doing their part to educate us about the earth and the environment, so that we can preserve it for future generations.

Women's Rights & Gender Representation

Iib -shortlist -theme -5

Women are making their voices heard in the streets & online, and forcing a new awareness of gender representation in all realms. Creators are supporting #MeToo and associated movements for women's rights by throwing their talents behind the call to end misogyny - for good.

City Life

Iib -shortlist -theme -6

Is your city affordable? How does it treat its homeless? Can you access anabortion clinic quickly and safely? Cities exist to serve all residents, from the most wealthy to the most marginalized - this year's creators utilized unique and immersive forms to examine what makes cities livable for all.
