We put out the call to you a couple of months ago to create fantastic reports for the Data Stories Gallery, and we were amazed by your submissions! Congratulations to the grand winner and runners-up from March and April.

The theme for May is data storytelling. We're putting together some special guest judges for May, so if you haven't submitted a report yet -- or have submitted in the past -- this is an exciting month to participate!

March Grand Winner:

Paul's report displays a great use of custom design and implemented good UX/UI design.

Submit your story

Want to see your work become a Featured story? Post it to the Data Stories Gallery, and then tweet a link with the hashtags #powerbi #datastory. At the end of each month we’ll review all tweeted stories, and choose several to become featured. Featured stories will be selected for telling a compelling story, being original and creative, and effectively using Power BI.

The author of the story that we pick as the grand winner each month will win a Power BI t-shirt and a badge of recognition for their Community profile. As mentioned above, the theme for May is data storytelling. Data isn't just numbers in a table -- it can be used effectively to educate, entertain, and inspire. Tell us a story with your data!
