In collaboration with KEXP, a global radio station and a Seattle area iconic brand, we are excited to announce the launch of an “employee only” data visualization contest!

Exploring nearly 18 years of KEXP playlist data, we are looking for engaging, interactive and beautiful visualizations from our Tableau employees.


Tableau employees will have roughly 4 weeks to complete their Data+Music visualizations and submit them to our Tableau + KEXP review board. The review board will choose 5 winners that display creativity, storytelling and the power of the Tableau platform. The chosen winners will receive prizes including Tableau and KEXP swag, along with a VIP Experience* involving a future KEXP Session concert. And most importantly - the chosen winners will be recognized in front of their peers as true data artists!

*Prizes will not include airfare and/or hotel. Employees outside of Seattle can choose swag instead if desired.

Submissions must be received by September 29th, 11:59pm to be considered. Thanks #datafam.

*Please keep the data private in your Tableau Public visualization and DO NOT make the data available for download.
