The Land Portal launches third annual land data stories contest

In honour of International Open Data Day, having taken place on March 6th, we would like to invite you to submit your data story to the Land Portal.  Read more here below!

Why submit a data story?
  • Promoting your own work to a vast, diverse international audience;
  • Learning about communicating data in an easily understandable and appealing format;
  • Providing visibility of your story to an audience of over 20,000 people!
  • Winning a prize, of course!
What are the requirements for a data story?
  • Dynamic story that captures attention and presents data in an innovative and engaging way using photos, quotes, maps, infographics or other means to convey data (example: ESRI story maps (link is external) or Google Data Stories (link is external));
  • Story should “make data speak”, so opening up the meaning and the context behind one specific quantitative or qualitative dataset for a wider audience. Click here for inspiration on possible land datasets;
  •  Story needs to be centred on one of the following themes: women’s land rights, land & investments, urban tenure, community & indigenous land rights and/or international or regional land monitoring initiatives, such as the SDGs or the VGGTs;
  • A maximum word limit of 1,000 words using language and tone that speaks to a non-expert audience.
