GOOD is currently hosting an open competition for infographics on the Haiti earthquake. The goal is to show how devastating the earthquake was, how recovery efforts are going, and where some of the aid money coming from around the world is going. Judging will be done by Perry-Zucker and the editors of GOOD and outstanding submissions will be featured on the GOOD website.

I’ve posted the exact requirements for the contest below.

the OBJECTIVE
Highlight the scope of the Haiti earthquake, as well as the aid given to help recover from the disaster.

the ASSIGNMENT
Create an infographic that explores some or all of the following: the toll of the earthquake, why the earthquake was so devastating, the recovery efforts, and the world’s donations of money and aid. We’re offering this contest in collaboration with Design for Haiti (a new site by Aaron Perry-Zucker, the man behind Design for Obama and the accompanying book Design for Obama—Posters for Change: A Grassroots Anthology), which is collecting information graphics about Haiti. The judging will be done by Perry-Zucker and the editors of GOOD.

the REQUIREMENTS
Send us an e-mail at projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your infographic or post it to GOOD’s Community Blog http://www.good.is/community/ with the tag “February 2010 Transparency Contest.” It can be in any image format, but it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. Make sure to include your sources, and a brief (one- or two-sentence) introduction to your concept. We’ll take submissions now through February 9. The winning entry will be announced on February 16, featured on our homepage and on the Design for Haiti site, and printed in the next issue of GOOD. We’ll send a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to the winner.

Can’t wait to see what comes of this!
