Interactive Graphic


  • Helps tell a traditional story using interactive graphics
  • Displays evidence of proper research
  • Clearly indicates source of information; survey data includes sample size
  • Serves as a supplement to allow readers to explore data sets or other primary information in creative ways
  • The enhanced graphic may or may not tell the whole story on its own, and readers can still understand it independently


  • Judges should consider overall content and reporting, but may give extra weight to graphics that were not made with a template
