We’ll shortly be launching the 2013 Information is Beautiful Awards.
To help us improve on what we felt was a big success last year, we’ve generated a pico-questionnaire with a few short questions relating to the awards.
We’re hoping your insights and suggestions will help us to make this year even better.
Five respondents will win a copy of the new edition of
