Judges remarks:

  • “The attention to detail… it’s this thing about going above and beyond and adding polish that makes it stand out among the competition. There’s a level of competency to them that pushes it above excellence.”
  • “This is trend I want to see more of. Instead of just doing graphs and charts, highlighting interesting points… it adds so much context.”
  • “I think it’s the use of narrative language. It’s framing the numbers in a way that makes it seem very accessible and fun to me. That narrative is an interesting balance.”
  • “It’s meaningful vs. just data. It’s actually telling a story about the data.”
