Mon€y Panic$ shortlist

challenge_panic_620

Tasks don’t come much bigger than the one we set with the Guardian Datablog: to visualize the financial crisis.

At the beginning we thought this second challenge could be a bit more frightening than the first. Too many datasets. Too many numbers. Too much complexity. Difficult to understand. Difficult to find the story.

But again we were surprised and overwhelmed by a wave of amazing and creative entries – loads of beautiful designs, daring napkins and intense interactive pieces. 

See for yourselves:

Winners will be announced on the Guardian Datablog on Friday 16th December.
