2018 John Hunter Excellence in Plotting Contest

In memory of John Hunter, we are pleased to be reviving the SciPy John
Hunter Excellence in Plotting Competition for 2018. This open competition
aims to highlight the importance of data visualization to scientific
progress and showcase the capabilities of open source software.

Participants are invited to submit scientific plots to be judged by a
panel. The winning entries will be announced and displayed at the
conference.

John Hunter?s family and NumFocus are graciously sponsoring cash prizes for
the winners in the following amounts:

···

-

   1st prize: $1000
   -

   2nd prize: $750
   -

   3rd prize: $500

   -

   Entries must be submitted by June, 8th to the form at
   https://goo.gl/forms/7q86zgu5OYUOjODH3.
   -

   Winners will be announced at Scipy 2018 in Austin, TX.
   -

   Participants do not need to attend the Scipy conference.
   -

   Entries may take the definition of ?visualization? rather broadly.
   Entries may be, for example, a traditional printed plot, an interactive
   visualization for the web, or an animation.
   -

   Source code for the plot must be provided, in the form of Python code
   and/or a Jupyter notebook, along with a rendering of the plot in a widely
   used format. This may be, for example, PDF for print, standalone HTML and
   Javascript for an interactive plot, or MPEG-4 for a video. If the original
   data can not be shared for reasons of size or licensing, "fake" data may be
   substituted, along with an image of the plot using real data.
   -

   Each entry must include a 300-500 word abstract describing the plot and
   its importance for a general scientific audience.
   -

   Entries will be judged on their clarity, innovation and aesthetics, but
   most importantly for their effectiveness in communicating a real-world
   problem. Entrants are encouraged to submit plots that were used during the
   course of research or work, rather than merely being hypothetical.
   -

   SciPy reserves the right to display any and all entries, whether
   prize-winning or not, at the conference, use in any materials or on its
   website, with attribution to the original author(s).

Hi,

Is there a web page that collects the links to the results of the
previous editions ?

I found the 2013 edition website http://conference.scipy.org/jhepc2013/

I also found 2016 winner
https://scipy2016.scipy.org/ehome/146062/332971/ with links to previous
galleries, but 2014 and 2015 links are broken
(http://stsdas.stsci.edu/download/mdroe/plotting/ and
http://stsdas.stsci.edu/download/mdroe/plotting-2015/)

Best,

Pierre
