    360Giving is inviting you to use their dataset to develop and visualise innovative answers to two key questions facing charitable and philanthropic grantmakers:

    Thematic trends: Who has funded what over the years?
    User-led organisations: Who funds them, in what thematic area, how much funding do they receive and what type of organisation are they (e.g. CIC, charity, co-operative, community group)?

    By opening up 360Giving's grantmaking data to some of the world’s most inquisitive and creative minds, they hope that they will in turn help funders to maximise their impact on the many great charitable causes they support.

    Whether it’s an interactive web app, a graphic image, a video or another form of visualisation, they are looking for original responses to these two critical questions.

    Entries must use the 360Giving dataset, but you are encouraged to use other datasets alongside it. You can find a list of suggested datasets HERE.

    All submissions will be judged by a panel led by co-founder Will Perrin, 360Giving and Good Things Foundation trustee, and founder of community journalism startup Talk About Local.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open to individuals or teams of up to eight people from any organisation or country.

    Prize


    Top three entries will receive prizes of between 2,000 GBP (approx. 2700 USD) and 6,000 GBP (approx. 8100 USD).

    In addition, depending on the number of submissions and their quality, there might be also an award of between 100 GBP (approx. 135 USD) and 500 GBP (approx. 670 USD) to each entry that meets submission criteria. The total prize fund is approximately 27,000 USD.

    Winners will be announced by mid-September 2018.
