We are happy to announce that Ashish Naidu is the Fan Favorite winner of the Nielsen Data Visualization Contest. Congratulations to Ashish, who received the most votes for his visualization and congratulations again to Dustin Poh as the Judge's Choice winner. Thanks again to all the Finalists and participants for making our contest a success!

Nielsen launched a data visualization contest in the hope of further exploring the intersection of art and science—and we were amazed by the response, from downloads, to entries, from social media conversations and debates, to shares. For this contest, we made data available from State of the Media: Social Media Report (data from 2011) and Consumer Usage Report (data from 2011).

JUDGE’S CHOICE ANNOUNCEMENT

The judges—Matt Anchin, SVP Global Communications; Ana Mackay-Sim, Global Creative Director; Eric Solomon, SVP Product Leadership; Evelina Simanonyte, Knowledge Manager Media And Advertising Analytics—found the entries to be diverse in their interpretation of the data and were impressed by the quality of the entries.

They are pleased to announce the Judge’s Choice winner of the Nielsen Data Visualization Contest: Dustin Poh and his interpretation of "data showing the exponential growth in consumers’ thirst of media and social networking".
