The Health Data Visualization Contest is over and the vote is in! If you missed it, rest easy — there will be more contests! Without further ado, here are the winners: 1. Dana Ng squeaked into first place with this great static infographic about cancer: Cancer Anyone? The graphic tells a great story, has a good flow, and overall high quality graphic design. Dana will receive a license for Tableau Desktop, a ticket to Strata Conference + Hadoop World, and $500 to help with travel expenses for the conference.

4. Fourth was also a close one, and does a really great job with data analysis. Stephanie Vatz created an interactive map detailing America’s Worst Nursing Homes.

There were lots of great submissions, and plenty of good visualization work went into these. Ranking the submissions was a difficult job and there were some contentions among the judges, showing how different qualities of a visualization can all be important. Keep your eye out for the next contest, we’ve got some great ideas brewing!
