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!
