On-Demand Webinar

Meet the Iron Viz judges

During the qualifier contest, data visualizations (or “vizzes” as we like to call them) are scored based on three criteria: analysis, design, and storytelling. A panel of Tableau Community judges scores the first round determining the top 10 entries that advance to a second round of scoring by a set of guest judges. The three data rockstars with the highest score then proceed as finalists to the virtual Iron Viz Championship. But who are these judges, and how does this process actually work? Join us for this live broadcast to hear directly from a panel of Iron Viz 2020 first-round judges. You’ll learn more about the overall judging process and gain insight into what it takes to impress them at each step along the way.

This is part of the All About Iron Viz webinar series.
