As the Tableau Torch moves across the world, the rest of the community will also participate by taking part in the Tableau Torch Viz Contest.
Between June 23 and August 22, there will be five opportunities to create a winning Tableau viz. Each round will focus on one feature of Tableau 10 and an Olympics-inspired theme. The entries will be judged by our torchbearers and Tableau employees, including developers who worked on Tableau 10. The winner of each round will get a complimentary ticket to TC16 in Austin!
Show off your Tableau skills by submitting a Tableau 10 viz for one or all of the rounds.
The theme is loosely aligned to the Olympic games, but that doesn't mean your data or your viz have to be! You will, however, want to note the feature that is paired with the theme. The use of the feature is much of what the viz will be judged on. See the Coming Soon page to get better acquainted with these new capabilities. But, most importantly, be creative and have fun!
