Information graphic winners

1st: Alli Berry F Newsmagazine – SAIC, “Rights of Spring”

“It’s hard to make a bar chart beautiful, and that’s beautiful.”

2nd: Ivana Cruz Distraction Magazine – University of Miami, “Find Your Match”

3rd: Ashley Brozic Distraction Magazine – University of Miami, “UM Goes Social”

Honorable mention: Sophianna Bishop Distraction Magazine – University of Miami, “The ultimate holiday wrap-up”

Judges discussed that there’s a fine line between the being clean and well-executed and having the graphic interest to jump out at the reader. Judges described the winners as “polished and propelled by a clean display of information.”

The judges had this advice for infographics:

Don’t get in the way of good reporting by burying it. There should be a very clear visual path for readers to follow the information through.

Try to edit down the most important information; it will improve the clarity of your graphic.

Congratulations to Alli!
