In 2016 SURFsara organized the first SURFsara Visualization Challenge (the original announcement can be found here). It was a call to users of the Dutch National e-Infrastructure to send in visualizations of their research and their results, to show how visualization and the e-Infrastructure contributed to their research.

Entries were judged on visual impact, skill required to make the visualization, the added value of the visualization and usage of the e-Infrastructure. With a total of 12 entries, from very diverse fields of science, this was quite a nice result for the first edition of this challenge. Below are the entries (top 3 first), together with background text as supplied by the entrants. Click on the images for a larger view.

We will be organizing the SURFsara Visualization Challenge again in 2017. Please watch this page for more information.
