Use cogwheels, LEGO, waterworks, cookies, LED lights, music and sound, graphics, animations, online devices, wearables or something else suitable to visualize open data. We offer cash rewards for the best physical or digital visualization that is based on the agency’s open data. The best solutions will be bought by us and be displayed at a public space at our agency.

Each award is 20,000 SEK

If the jury is able to select a suitable winner, the winning team will be awarded 20 000 SEK (the agency will buy the final visualization). The award is intended to be used for the team’s costs for finalizing the visualization so it is ready to be displayed in a public space.

Available awards

The following agencies (more to come…) are offering this award, for best visualization based on their open data:



Date – contributions must be submitted according to instructions available at no later than Sunday 7th of June, at 15:00. A jury will evaluate all contributions and select one (1) winner, if the proposed solution meets all criteria and is suitable to be displayed at the agency’s premises. The final decision is made 10th of June, at 12:00.

Video – all contributions must be submitted in the form of a URL to a video (1 minute long) describing the proposed solution.

Criteria – we are looking for solutions that are exciting, prototypes that visualize something important based on the agency’s open data. The purpose is to display the visualization in a public space and this is one important aspect that the jury will look at. It is a requirement that the visualization is based on or somehow use the agency’s open data.

The Prize is available for all – all events that are registered at are allowed to use this award, in order to motivate participation and increase visibility. A link to these rules is required.
