This category is about bringing life to data and helping people connect with the information that the data has revealed. Entries should seek to not only present data findings but to consider how you want people to respond to the data findings. A good story sets the scene for the character’s and takes us through a plot in a way that engages people with values or emotions. Stories come in many forms including; art, film, books, journalism and sound. Some other popular ways of telling stories include comics, game development and digital video. What story is the data trying to tell you?
