Data visualisation challenge

Dynamic educational data award - Last September, we opened a competition challenge in collaboration with Visualizing.org, requiring graphic designers to construct a clear and compelling visualisation on the economic costs and returns on education.

The winners were Krisztina Szucs and Mate Cziner from Hungary. Their interactive chart condenses highly complex data on the costs and benefits of education around the world. It highlights important facts showing students, parents and policy makers where the real costs and benefits lie for them in relation to education.  It takes a detailed look at public versus private costs, per men and women for three simultaneously selected countries, while reflecting the benefit comparison between upper-secondary and tertiary education.
