About the Visualization Challenge

Thank you for your interest in the Visualization Challenge (The Vizzies). The contest will run between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30,2014. Please come back on Aug. 1.

Some of science's most powerful statements are not made in words. From DaVinci's Vitruvian Man to Rosalind Franklin's X-rays, science visualization has a long and literally illustrious history.

To illustrate is to enlighten! Illustrations provide the most immediate and influential connection between scientists and other citizens, and the best hope for nurturing popular interest. They are a necessity for public understanding of research developments.

The video below highlights past winners of the Visualization Challenge.
