About your entry

Competition submissions can be in the form of an infographic / static data visualization or interactive visualization.

All entries

  • Your entry must be in English.
  • It must be an original creation and be your own work.
  • Data sources and other references must be clearly cited.
  • You must have the rights to use any copyrighted materials such as photography included in your entry.
  • Any creative commons licensed material must appear with the appropriate attribution.

Specific information for interactive/animated visualizations

Hosting of animated or interactive entries will need to be arranged by participants, these entries cannot be hosted directly on Wikiprogress.org. These will then either be embedded on Wikiprogress.org, or Wikiprogress.org will link to your hosted entry.

Please take into account that the size of the embedded entries might vary from the original size, therefore it is recommended (but not required) that the entries have a web responsive design to maintain the original aspect of the elements.

Specific information for static infographics and visualizations

Static infographics and visualizations will need to be constructed paying careful attention to legibility, particularly in print, as the entries may be printed and displayed at the 5th OECD World Forum in Guadalajara.
