Hello Members of the FDVFP Mailing List,

Have you ever seen a visualization of a data set, process, or
phenomenon that took your breath away because it effectively
explained a difficult to understand concept? The Forty Day Visual
Feast Project (FDVFP) will support the creation of forty exciting
visualizations that are designed to inspire and educate both
scientists and artists.

Upon its completion, the FDVFP will showcase forty images, a
description of the steps that you can take to construct them for
yourself, and a commentary on their strengths and weaknesses. The
FDVFP site will include an informative page for each visualization
and a beautiful wall sized poster highlighting each of the designs.

We invite you to submit a portfolio containing up to five high
quality visualizations that are each accompanied by a description of
the steps needed to construct the image and a retrospective on the
process of creating the visualization. In consultation with a panel
of experts from the humanities, social sciences, and natural
sciences, the FDVFP will award cash prizes for the first, second,
third, fourth, and honorable mention submissions.

Are you interested in submitting your own visualization?
