Enter our prize challenge
and your visualisation could win
thousands of pounds
360Giving is inviting you to use our dataset to develop and visualise innovative solutions to two key questions facing the grantmaking sector.
Who has funded what themes throughout the years?
User-led organisations: Who funds them, in what thematic area, how much funding do they receive and what type of organisation are they (e.g. CIC, charity, co-operative, community group)?
Whether it’s an interactive web app, a graphic image, a video or another form of visualisation, we are looking for responses to these questions that excite and appeal. They will be assessed against the following criteria:
- The applicant’s ability to answer the Challenge question correctly and clearly
- Aesthetics and creativity
- How innovative it is compared to current visualisations.
Entries must use the 360Giving dataset to answer one of the Challenge questions and you are encouraged to use other datasets alongside it. You can find a list of suggested datasets here.
All submissions will be judged by a panel made up of experts from the sector selected by 360Giving. They will award prizes of between £2,000 and £6,000 to the best three responses to the questions.
In addition, each entry that meets our submission criteria will receive an award of between £100 and £500 (depending on the number of submissions and their quality).
The closing date for entries is 31th July. Winners will be announced in September 2018.
