Visualise well-being and win a trip to Mexico!

June 25, 2015

BLI InitiativeWikiprogress is running an infographic and data visualisation contest, with the prize of a paid trip to Guadalajara, Mexico to attend the 5th OECD World Forum on the 13-15 October 2015 for the top 3 winning entries. The winners will be awarded with a certificate of recognition during a special session of the Forum. The competition is open to all individuals, both amateurs and professionals. We especially would like to encourage the participation of young people and one of the prizes will be reserved for entries from under 26-year olds.

The aim of the contest is to encourage participants to use well-being measurement in innovative ways to show how data on well-being give a more meaningful picture of the progress of societies than more traditional growth-oriented approaches; and to use their creativity to communicate key ideas about well-being to a broad audience.

Contestants are asked to create an infographic or data visualisation that addresses one or more of the following questions:

  • How do well-being levels vary between countries, or within countries?
  • How do well-being levels vary for different population groups (e.g. for young people, the elderly, by gender, etc.)?
  • Why is it important to look beyond purely economic indicators (such as GDP) for a better picture of people’s current or future well-being?
  • How can the multi-dimensionality of well-being be effectively communicated to the general public?

Deadline for Submissions: 24 August, 2015

    Really nice, I would like to enroll, but this would require a whole lot of research. How would a Nigerian send his entry?
