About the Competition
Some of science’s most powerful statements have not been made in words: Da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man,” Darwin’s sketches of the evolutionary tree, Annie Jump Cannon’s work with stellar classification, Rosalind Franklin’s X-ray photography of DNA, LIGO’s illustration of colliding neutron stars. Science has, for centuries, been inextricably entwined with images and artistry. These visualizations are what connect scientists and citizens, creating a universal language that enables people the world over to exchange knowledge and to understand scientific ideas and phenomena.
This year, the Vizzies challenge enters its 16th cycle, and we are continuing the long history and tradition of scientific visualizations by asking you and everyone to submit your best science or engineering visualization. Formerly known as “The International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge,” the competition is currently cosponsored by NSF and Popular Science.
In addition to being featured on the NSF site and on PopSci.com, Vizzies Challenge winners will be awarded cash prizes. Experts’ Choice prizes and Peoples’ Choice prizes will be awarded as checks made out to the registered team leader/submitter and may be shared among any additional team members listed on the registration form at the team leader’s direction. Up to five Experts’ Choice winners may be chosen from any category/media type and each winner will receive $2000, and up to three Peoples’ Choice winners may be chosen and each winner will receive $500.
