2019 student technology competition

The competition has now closed to entries.

Thanks to everyone who entered our 2019 student technology competition.

We were delighted with the number – and quality – of entries we received.

Congratulations to our winners and runners up. They have won a paid internship with us this summer.

The overall winner is Alasdair Hopwood.

Alasdair’s in-depth analysis, unique charts, professional production values and well-reasoned conclusions impressed our judges.

We also chose five runners up. For each, here’s a flavour of the judges’ comments.

  • Anna Clarey: "unique approach to visualisations and an ability to provide concise and effective analysis"
  • William Ellis and Adam Juanette: "ability to identify key climate issues and their effect on the economy”
  • Adja Manoj: “an impressive video that brought the charts and visualisations to life”
  • Elizabeth Parker: “in-depth consideration of the material and creative use of charts”
  • Max Welch: “extensive considered data and detailed visual understanding of the wider effects of climate change”

The competition challenged students, aged 16 to 18, to show us how they would use data to measure the impact of climate change on the economy. We asked students to create a meaningful data visualisation that explored how climate change affects the economy. 

If you missed the deadline last year, watch out for details of our 2020 student technology competition later this year. And take a look at our other competitions.
