All of the images in The Best American Infographics 2013 were originally published for an American audience, online or in print, during 2012. The top ten interactive works were selected this year by Eric Rodenbeck, founder of San Francisco’s Stamen Design and a leader in the field of data visualization. Selecting the rest of the works fell to me. To nominate infographics for the next volume, see the rules at garethcook.net, or e-mail me at contactgareth@gmail.com.

Entry Rules for The Best American Infographics 2014

To be considered, an image must have been first published (physically or virtually) in 2013 for an American audience (Canada included).

For interactive works, the deadline is Monday, January 13, 2014. Publications and individual artists may each submit up to three works by emailing series editor Gareth Cook. Please send a link to the work and the name, phone number, and email address of the artist, as well as the copyright holder, if different. Ten interactive works will be chosen.

For non-interactive works, publications and individual artists may each submit up to 10 works by Friday, November 15, 2013. (Additional works, covering the rest of the year, must be submitted by Monday, January 13, 2014.) Please email all submissions to series editor Gareth Cook. Please include a link (or PDF if there is no link) for the works and the name, phone number, and email address of the artist, as well as the copyright holder, if different. It works to your advantage to submit entries early. You may submit the works of others. Approximately 60 non-interactive works will be selected for the collection.

We are defining “infographics” broadly, and plan to include a rich diversity of graphic work based on data. The series editor will determine what qualifies, and any questions should be directed to him.
