Win a trip to Mexico!

Enter our well-being infographics contest

Want to win a trip to Mexico? Then enter the Wikiprogress infographic and data visualisation contest and try your luck at winning one of three paid trips to Guadalajara, Mexico to attend the 5th OECD World Forum on the 13-15 October 2015. Anyone can enter, though one of the three prizes will be reserved for people under 26.

The aim of the contest is to show how well-being gives a more meaningful picture of progress in societies than more traditional growth-oriented approaches, such as GDP; and to use their creativity to communicate key ideas about well-being to the general public.

Entrants to the competition should take one or more of the following questions on board:

  • How do well-being levels vary between countries, or within countries?
  • How do well-being levels vary for different population groups, e.g. for young people, the elderly, by gender, etc.?
  • Why is it important to look beyond purely economic indicators, such as GDP, for a better picture of people’s current or future well-being?
  • How can the multi-dimensionality of well-being be effectively communicated to the general public?

Deadline for entering the competition: 24 August, 2015
