Description:

When thinking about visualizing data, some might think of the ground-breaking work of people like Edward Tufte. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is intimately interested in visualizing science and engineering data, and they have sponsored this annual challenge for other interested parties working in this field. Each year, the NSF and the journal "Science" work together to assemble a panel of judges who review entries in five categories, including "photographs", "illustrations", and "interactive media". On the homepage, visitors can learn about the contest guidelines and view a gallery of images created by past winners. Even a cursory glance at the winners from 2008 is quite remarkable. Some of the winners include Mario De Stefano and his "Glass Forest" images of diatoms taken with a scanning electron microscope. Visitors can look through galleries dating back to 2003, and this might just inspire a few curious parties to send in their own submissions.
