Information is Beautiful Awards 2012: Entries

Dubbed as the world’s first open contest to celebrate excellence and beauty in data visualizations, infographics and information design, the Information is Beautiful contest has had a great response with quite a few ‘eye-popping’ entries. The judges for the contest were David McCandless (Data journalist & information designer), Brian Eno (Musician & visual artist), Paola Antonelli (Museum of Modern Art), Simon Rogers (The Guardian datablog), Maria Popova (Cultural curator), Aziz Cami (Creative Director, Kantar), and the online infoviz community! Take a look at some of the entries (few of them went on to win).

I am an interaction designer with an interest in infoviz as well. These are amazing although a little more higher res would have been even better. Great site btw, putting on rss.

I do not exactly know what each of them really mean to convey, but they look lovely!
