Our Data Journalism and Microsoft Research teams will select a winner and two runners-up from the reports submitted, based on storytelling, data modeling, and a good use of the Timeline Storyteller visual.

Timeline Storyteller is an expressive visual storytelling environment for presenting timelines. You can use Timeline Storyteller to present different aspects of your data using a palette of timeline representations, scales, and layouts, as well as controls for filtering, highlighting, and annotation.
